On December 30, 1776, Lydia Minturn Post, the wife of an officer in the Continental Army, made the following entry in her journal: "The year has closed disastrous, gloomy; panic and despair reign in many a breast." Just two weeks later, however, Post_s outlook had changed considerably. During that time, General George Washington and his troops routed the British at Princeton. On January 15, Post wrote: "News of the Battle of Princeton. My husband safe, thank Heaven; General Washington victorious... They [the British] expected to crush us; to quell with ease, by their giant power_ They forget the deep-rooted indignation which burns in our breasts; the determination to be free...." These two passages from Post_s journal, by conveying the views of a person who lived through the events, are representative of the 170 titles reproduced in this microfiche collection. Many different viewpoints are represented herein, with nine books written by women; over fifty diaries, journals, or memoirs; and books focusing on the loyalists, British military units, and French participants in the war.
