An historical novel about the American Revolution.
From the Foreword:
In attempting to depictive medical men of various sorts as they practiced during the years 1780-81, I have drawn largely on contemporary diaries and letters - a rich but confusing source. Because the same disease was known under various names and the treatments or remedies for it varied so widely, it proved difficult to select ailments recognizable to a modern reader and to select the most interesting of the several treatments. Doctor James Thatcher's invaluable and wonderfully detailed diary of his career, as a physician with the Continental Army, served as the backbone of the medical elements in this tale. My obligations to his memory are as profound as they are numerous.
