The Private Soldier Under Washington
Bolton was the first to take a close look at the life of the private soldier in the State brigades and the Continental Army. In this 1902 classic, he studies the origin of the army, how the forces were maintained, the personal gear and weaponry of the soldier, his relationship with other soldiers, officers and civilians, his daily duties and diversions, the dreaded hospitals and prison ships, and how the army moved from place to place. He also examines the various personal accounts, diaries of soldiers and officers, which have survived.
