The back page has an interesting article on the tactics of the colonists during the Revolutionary War, which includes: "...it is not the interest of the Provincials to come to a general engagement but to harass the King's troops by marches & countermarches to cut off their convoys, "...it is not the interest of the Provincials to come to a general engagement but to harass the King's troops by marches & countermarches to cut off their convoys, &, in a word, to protract the war till they shall be openly, as they are now, probably, privately assisted by our natural enemies in Europe..." plus some comments on Fort Washington (see photos).
