It details the courts-martials during the US Revolutionary War. The names of the men, what they were charged with, what the verdict was and what the sentencing was. For those who believe that only the good guys fought for the US, this can be an eye opener.
Most of the people in charge of the divisions used their own money to house, feed and clothe the men of their division. They were to be repaid at a later time. Not all of those in charge were able to do this well.
Summer soldiers were those who left to go home and get their crops in, or to sow them.
It's a fascinating look at the seamier side of the soldiers of the US Revolutionary War.
