From the Battle of Lexington and Concord on 19 April, 1775, up through the reduction of the victorious Continental Army to a single regiment in January 1784, this book is a day-to-day chronicle of the American Revolution, both on the battlefield and in the halls of the Continental Congress. Covered in detail are the movements of not only the Continental Army and Navy, but the Marines--not covered comprehensively in other sources--and the militia. Information on the actions of Congress highlights each day's business, including the resolutions pertinent to the war.

Drawing on such vital primary documents as the Journals of the Continental Congress and the Diplomatic Correspondence of the American Revolution, the book offers a close-up view of the political and military tension of the time, the perilous situation of the colonists, and the concerns of the soldiers and sailors immersed in battle. It also provides insight into the moves and counter-moves of British and American forces as intelligence flowed in both directions to influence the course of combat. All military campaigns of the revolution, from Canada to Florida and Louisiana, are included. The result is unmatched coverage of the battles, both military and legislative, that gave birth to America.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 10 Up—AP students will relish this detailed account. It follows the American military in all theaters of the war and documents the movements and actions of the Continental Navy, the Continental Marines, and the Colonial militia and regulars in their fight for independence. It also chronicles the Continental Congress throughout the war and helps readers understand the difficulty of directing such a campaign, by a committee, often using out-of-date information. Highlights are given for the years 1763 through 1774, and then there are almost daily entries for the war years 1775 through 1781, including in-depth discussions of battle strategies and the impact of key encounters. There is coverage of both famous and lesser-known events, though only prominent events are listed for the period from 1782 through George Washington's death in 1799. The book's font is small, but readable. Dates and locations are in larger, bold font, and typically the day of the week is mentioned within the first line of text. Black-and-white illustrations with citations are found on almost every spread. Serious students of American history will appreciate the chronological perspective, and the detailed index helps to make this an immensely useful resource.—Patricia N. McClune, Conestoga Valley High School Library, Lancaster, PA
