"The following volumes is intended as a short biography of Goose Van Schaick pertaining primarily to his military career. The emphasis here is twofold. First, to look at Goose Van Schaick the military officer and second, to get a brief glimpse of the personal side of Goose Van Schaick. Military letters, orders and records relating to his activities in both the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War are available in sufficient numbers to give a good picture of his military activities and provide ample insight into the many as a military officer. The important part he played, particularly in upstate New York, is described in detail by the many documents that still exist." - from the Introduction.
