Author: J.P. Martin
Review by: BKF
This book details the daily life of a Revolutionary War soldier. Joseph Plumb Martin enlisted in June 1776, when he was 15 years old, and spent the next six years in the war. When he was 70 years old, he wrote this account of his days as a soldier. He died in 1850, at age 90. The story is amazing in how it allows you to follow, first hand, the mind-bending hard times of a Revolutionary War soldier.
