"The period embraced in this volume is from June 1, 1779, to July 10, 1780. These thirteen months were fraught with the most stirring and exciting events. The atrocities committed by the Indians kept the settlers along the widely exposed frontier in a state of constant apprehension. The principle events were: the capture of Stony Point by General Wayne; the expedition of General Sullivan to chastise the troublesome Indians; the appointment of John Jay as Minister to Spain; the transfer of New York's western territory to Congress, for the common good; and the return of General Lafayette, who brought from the French government to Washington the commission of Lieutenant General and Vice Admiral of France."
This volume is full of military matters regarding the atrocities on the western frontier of New York, and especially the Sullivan-Clinton campaign against the hostile Iroquois tribes.
George Clinton (1739-1812), one of the "Founding Fathers" of the United States and the "Father of New York State", first and third governor of the state, Brigadier General during the Revolutionary War, Vice President under Presidents Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. Clinton served as an officer in the colonial militia during the French and Indian War and held both the office of Governor and the rank of Brigadier General during the Revolution, building two forts along the Hudson River and charged with its defense. A friend of George Washington, he supplied food for the troops at Valley Forge and rode with Washington to the first inauguration, presiding over the celebratory dinner. His public papers are in 10 volumes, encompassing his service during the Revolution and full of primary source material. They also contain illustrations of prominent figures of the Revolutionary War, including John Jay, the Marquis de Lafayette, Morgan Lewis, Count de Grasse, Anthony Wayne, Robert R. Livingston, John Stark, Major Benjamin Tallmadge, and Benedict Arnold. The last volume includes letters from the Governor's office for the years 1782 to 1785, in addition to illustrations of taverns and other establishments in New York. Volumes 9 and 10 include an analytical index to the papers. Volume 10 also provides an account of the exhumation and reinternment of Governor Clinton's remains in 1908.
