Description: Captain John Chilton's letters and diary offer insight into the more routine aspects of life in the American army during the Revolutionary War, along with detailed observations of his military experiences, the marches, battles, hardships and frustrations. His letters are full of inquires and instructions for his children, and express pride and concern for the men of his company. Struggles in camp and on the march, encounters with fellow officers and local inhabitants, and the hopes and expectations of Chilton and his men are highlighted. The Third Virginia Regiment was the first unit of Virginia regulars to join General Washington's army in New York. They served, with distinction, at Harlem Heights, Trenton, Morristown, Brandywine, Germantown, and Valley Forge. Several maps, a bibliography, and an index augment the text.
