"The Prisoners of New York: Captivity and Memory in the American Revolution"

During the Revolutionary War, more Americans lost their lives in the prisons and prison ships of New York City than from any other cause – very nearly twice as many as those who died in combat. This is the first-ever scholarly study of their experiences and how they would be remembered, celebrated, memorialized, and largely forgotten over the past 200 years.
