Who Was Who in the American Revolution is the first one-volume reference that examines the lives, legends and careers of more than 1,500 major and supporting players of the Revolution. From the Founding Fathers of the Continental Congress to foot soldiers to ordinary people whose lives got swept up in the conflict, this unique book is remarkable for both its breadth of knowledge and its meticulous, balanced scholarship. Just some of the people whose lives are chronicled in Who Was Who in the American Revolution are key political leaders, such as Thomas Jefferson, Gouverneur Morris and the fiery orator Patrick Henry; major military figures, such as George Washington, Nathanael Greene and naval commander John Paul Jones; extraordinary soldiers, such as the future president Andrew Jackson and the famous rifleman Timothy Murphy; British leaders, such as Lord Cornwallis and John Burgoyne; French allies, such as Lafayette and Comte de Rochambeau; infamous traitors and spies, such as Benedict Arnold, John Andre and Aaron Burr; diplomats and intellectual figures of the period, such as Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine and Edmund Burke; and legendary Revolutionary women, such as Betsy Ross, Molly Pitcher, Abigail Adams and Ann Lee, the charismatic founder of the Shaker sect. Each entry contains all pertinent biographical information, from birth and death dates to concise career summaries detailing activity before, during and after the war. An introduction provides an enlightening historical overview of the period, and a bibliography and thorough cross-referencing system enhance the book's value as an exemplary sourcebook
