Benson J. Lossing's Pictorial Field-Book of the Revolution in Virginia & Maryland

Originally published in 1850--less than 75 years after the war--this attractive reprint of a history classic gives a unique narrative to the conflict based on the author's travels to the original sites, some of which are now unrecognizable. The Field-Book contains many illustrations by the author of places, people, and objects important to the history of the American Revolution.
