Chapter One discusses the Gateway of Old Middlesex; Chapter Two-An Hour in the Government Dockyard; Chapter Three-Bunker Hill and the Monument; Chapter Four-The Continental Trenches; Chapter Five-The Old Wayside Mill; Chapter Six-The Plantation at Mystic Side; Chapter Seven-Lee's Headquarters and Vicinity; Chapter Eight-Old Charlestown Road, Lechmere's Point, and Putnam's Headquarters; Chapters Nine and Ten-A Day at Harvard; Chapter Eleven-Cambridge Camp; Chapter Twelve-Cambridge Common and Landmarks; Chapter Thirteen-Headquarters of the Army; Chapter Fourteen-Old Tory Row and Beyond; Chapter Fifteen-Mount Auburn to Nonantum Bridge; Chapter Sixteen-Lechmere's Point to Lexington; Chapter Seventeen-Lexington to Concord; Chapter Eighteen-The Retreat from Concord; Chapter Nineteen-A Fragment of King Philip's War; and Chapter Twenty-The Home of Rumford.
