Stedman was a Pennsylvania-born graduate of the College of William & Mary. A loyalist during the Revolution, he served in the British army as a commissary and as a commander of a German-American rifle regiment. He went to England after the war, where he wrote this history. "Generally considered the best contemporary account of the Revolution written from the British side"--Sabin 91057. Howes S914 ("b"); Larned, Literature of American History 1507 ("reflects opinions of British officers, sometimes very candid").
