Guide to the American Revolutionary War in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina covers 572 battles, raids and skirmishes, most of which get no mention even in the most detailed history books. The text identifies the location of the sites as best as can be determined, provides the historical background to understand what happened there, indicates what the visitor can expect to see and identifies interpretive aids. It includes URLs for websites of various parks and tourist organizations, correlated with various battle sites and events. The many photographs have descriptive captions to identify details of historic buildings, monuments, battlefields, and equipment. The glossary provides definitions for some 18th-century military and historical terms. The book also has a bibliography and an index. The appendices (alphabetical and chronological lists of engagements) as well as a complete bibliography and the color photos are available at the publisher’s website.
