Summary
"Caroline Cox examines the great gap that existed in the conditions of service of soldiers and officers in the Continental Army. She looks particularly at disparities between soldiers' and officers' living conditions, punishments medical care, burial, and treatment as prisoners of war. Using pension records, memoirs, and contemporary correspondence, Cox illuminates not only the persistence of hierarchy in Revolutionary America but also the ways in which soldiers contested their low status."--Jacket
