One of the most valuable and entertaining accounts to have survived the American Revolution, this journal vividly conveys the tumultuous spirit of the era. Massachusetts 16th Regiment surgeon James Thacher chronicles times of hardship and triumph, reporting on the news of the day as he and his fellow officers received it and on events he witnessed personally, such as the 1777 Battle of Saratoga and the 1780 hanging of British major John André.
