Searching for Yankee Doodle
The people most responsible for achieving America’s independence by winning the Revolutionary War were George Washington’s foot soldiers, the men of the Continental Army. Washington’s Soldiers in the American Revolution. Who exactly were they? What inspired them to endure appalling hardships during the most critical time in American history? Many different opinions have been offered over the years by historians about the common foot soldiers, the “grunts,” “doughboys” and “GIs” of the Continental Army.
Historian and author Robert A. Mayers unravels their lives, and offers a true image of the Yankee Doodles. He has published many works on the Revolutionary War and is an active member of several historical societies. Mayers has spoken at West Point and the Pentagon. His military experiences (as a combat officer in the Navy and Marine Corps) provide him with deep perspective of the campaigns and battles depicted in his works.
