    Good work revealing the details and environment of the American Revolution. Was frequently hard to follow due to the use of older English vernacular, foreign names, unlinked old geographical names, etc. This writing would often heap name upon name of unfamiliar place and person, without giving the reader enough time, story, background, or graphics to be able to stay keenly on top of the unfolding story. There was still enough of the facts and feelings for the reader to latch on to. This reader would like to read a similar piece that was more user friendly, written for the non PH.D. in American Revolutionary History. Still the inspiring story shone through.
