Includes: Time line of the Revolutionary War Events, Glossary, To Find Out More (books and websites), Bibliography, Notes on Quotes, Acknowledgments, Index. Schomp has written several books in which battlefield letters are compiled. She notes that battlefront letters have not changed much from the Revolution to Viet Nam.
