(Previously published as Private Yankee Doodle)
By Joseph Plumb Martin

If you check the notes to many histories of the American Revolution, you are likely to find copious references to this indispensable first-hand account. Originally published in 1830, when Martin was 70 years old, it returned to print in 1962. It's engrossing and informative, with numerous priceless anecdotes among Martin's "adventures, dangers, and sufferings" as a young soldier. Read it on a cold winter night before a roaring fireplace, and you are sure to imagine Martin there beside you, recounting these events.
