Embattled Farmers: Campaigns and Profiles of Revolutionary Soldiers from Lincoln, Massachusetts, 1775-1783
This book by Richard C. Wiggin, profiles and traces the footsteps of the 252 ordinary farmers from a single New England community who served during the Revolutionary War. It chronicles the connection of the town to the sweep of the war, and through the individual stories of these men puts a very human face on this history. The human stories of ordinary individuals are, of course, currently a hot focus of much historical interest, in counterpoint to the more usual history-through-the eyes-of-the-major-players. "Embattled Farmers" is the story of the American Revolution through the experiences of the ordinary soldiers -- not unlike the story of Joseph Plum Martin, but in this case, the collective stories of an entire town.
