CD: Pictorial Field Book of the Revolution; Or, Illustrations, By Pen and Pencil, of the History, Biography, Scenery, Relics, and Traditions of the Last War For American Independence - Benson J. Lossing. Although the story of the American Revolution has been well and often told, Mr. Lossing strives to present a more thorough history of the character and situation of the localities and of the men identified with the Revolution. He felt that "the men of old were fast fading away, and that relics associated with their trials and triumphs would soon be covered up forever." As a result, he took a journey of more than 8,000 miles and visited every important place made memorable by the events of the war, in the hope that a record of his pilgrimage, interwoven with the facts of past history, would provide a worthy reading experience for his readers. He also provided a detailed list of illustrations in each volume for the hundreds of engravings provided within the pages and a subject, place and fullname index for easy access to information. The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a "real" book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numbers will match the page numbers for all of the main text, as well as the index. Any unnumbered portraits and illustrations are at the back of the actual file, to keep page numbering consistent. CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, PC and MAC, 1641 pp. 101-CD3261 ISBN: 0788432613
