Who Was Who in the American Revolution, by L. Edward Purcell

New York: Facts-on-File, 1993. xi, 548 pp. Illus, biblio essay, index. . ISBN:0-8160-2107-4.

A biographical guide to some 1,500 prominent or interesting people --including not only Americans, but also Britons, French, Spaniards, and Indians-- in the Revolutionary War. Though there are some surprising omissions (e.g., Samuel Nicholas, the senior Marine officer, or Francesco Vigo, noted frontier scout and guide for George Rogers Clarke in the West), a very useful work.
