"The story of America's riflemen in the Revolutionary War begins with their formation in 1775. First person accounts of their recruitment, long march, and encampment at Boston, introduce readers to the flamboyant and sometimes unruly nature of riflemen. Gripping eyewitness accounts of Benedict Arnold's march and attack on Quebec and of the battles of Long Island, Harlem Heights, Throg's Neck, Fort Washington, Trenton, Princeton, and Brandywine, highlight the unique abilities of riflemen and their important role in the war. Nowhere is this role more evident than in the American victory at Saratoga..." - publisher.
