This massive reference work is a useful tool for researching and discovering the leaders of the American Revolution. It covers both well-known and obscure figures from a variety of backgrounds including soldiers, politicians, plantation owners, farmers, and more. Information is included for officers of the Continental Army, Navy, and Marines; leaders of state militias, for whom much information has been previously inaccessible; the framers and signers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution; diplomats and governors; and, importantly, the women who were instrumental during the Revolution. Entries describe each individual from birth to death and provide genealogical information when available.
