Short description This remarkable memoir is one of the most celebrated documents to emerge from the tumult of America's Revolutionary War. The ordinary and yet exceptional experiences of a young soldier in Washington's army are given a new life in this fourth edition, sensitively edited for a modern readership. The fourth edition of Ordinary Courage features extra maps and a more extensive bibliography, as well as a new Afterword, written by Karen Guenther, discussing film portrayals of the continental soldier.
