FROM PREFACE. --The object in the following work is three-fold. First, to group around the “Fatber of his Country” the generals who stood shoulder to shoulder with him through the stormy period of the Revolution. Second, to give in successive pictures rather than in military detail, the great battles of the Revolution. Third, to present the early history of each general, showing how they were trained by Providence for the very work to which their lives were given. There could be no better time than now to contemplate those pure patriots, who knew no sectional interests, but were bound together and borne aloft by a common love for the whole country-when Massachusetts called aloud from Bunker Hill, and Marion, from the swamps of South Carolina, answered her—when New York and Virginia moved side by side, bound by a common interest, and resolvid to share a common destiny. May that common inheritance never be divided !
