"It is rare to find intact a substantial body of letters from the period of the American Revolution which reveals in sharp detail the hardships and sufferings which soldiers in the field and their wives at home were forced to endure. While Nathan Peters served in the Continental Army, his wife Lois attempted to raise their children and carry on the family trade in Preston, Connecticut. The correspondence exchanged between them, transcribed and printed for the first time, offers a direct glimpse into the lives of two participants in the revolutionary cause." - Introduction.
