"This work is divided into two parts: the first treats of the causes and origin of the War or Independence, sums up the events of that war to 1781, and gives a complete account of the expedition of the French forces, commanded by the Court de Rochambeau, up to 1783. The second part is particularly devoted--1st. To historical notices of the French regiments which crossed to America and served there. 2d. To biographical notices of the French volunteers who took service under Congres, and of the principal officers who were present at the sieges of Savannah and Yorktown, or who fought on land or sea for the independence of the United States. 3d. To many episodes and interesting details, among which will be found a sketch of American society at that period, as it appeared to the French officers, who speak in their manuscripts and letters of the private life of a great number of notable American families." -- page v.
