Revolutionary War Almanac (almanacs Of American Wars)
Offering a day-by-day chronology of the people and events important to the American Revolution, Revolutionary War Almanac provides an up-close look at this historic time. The A-to-Z dictionary covers people, battles, and other details. More than 130 maps, photographs, and illustrations join with a detailed index, bibliography, and cross-references to make this compendium more accessible than others on the subjectThis no-nonsense compendium is intended for serious researchers and offers a considerable amount of information in an accessible and manageable format. Coverage is limited to war-specific material: campaigns, politics, diplomacy, and individuals who were directly involved. There are two main sections: a chronology and a historical dictionary. The day-by-day chronology spans two decades (1763-1783) and tracks significant developments on various fronts: regional battles and skirmishes, diplomatic and political maneuverings, and so on. Events are described in single sentences or brief paragraphs and are preceded by boldface subheadings (“Caribbean,” “North,” “South,” “Naval,” etc.) that alert researchers to pertinent information while allowing for rapid skimming.
