Reese & Osborn, Struggle for North America 38 (ref). Second American printing of this highly important work, previously printed in New Haven in 1758 and in London and Dublin in 1757. This is among the main authorities on the Lake George Campaign and is aimed largely at the vindication of the actions of Gen. Shirley. It has been suggested that New York historian William Smith may have had a hand in its preparation. "The writer is very severe in his criticisms of the leading political men of [New York], whom he blames for the failures that took place during the whole French war"-JCB.
