"The period with which we are concerned is that of a single year of the Revolutionary War, although to render the narrative replete in all its glamor, all its romance, it becomes necessary to provide a setting reaching back into other centuries. It is the year 1777. The preceding autumn, before the advance of the British regulars and their mercenary allies, the Hessians, every fort upon Long Island and Manhattan Island fell. In the summer and autumn of 1777 every fort on Lakes Champlain and George; every remaining fort held by the Americans on the lower Hudson, was captured by or abandoned to the British. It was the proud record of Fort Stanwix, that in all the state of New York it alone braved the enemy before its walls." - p. 12.
