Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788445359, CD-ROM)

"American affairs were still in a very critical state. Much apathy prevailed among the people, who cherished the delusion that the war was nearly over...The public finances were in a frightful state owing to the repeated issues of paper with no provision for its redemption. As a natural consequence this currency almost lost its purchasing power...Discontent was rife in the army, and Congress was paralysed by factions. But the Governor and Council of Maryland were indefatigable in their exertions to fill up the quota of the State and provide for the wants of the soldiers, and the pages of this volume show their ceaseless activity. Fortunately the State had but little trouble within her own borders. There were some small depredations by the British in the lower counties, and some disturbances by Tories in Worcester, Somerset, Queen Anne's and Kent; but these, as well as a mutinous rising in Delaware, threatening the Stores at Charles Town, were easily dealt with. This exemption gave Maryland the opportunity of raising large supplies of bread-stuffs and provisions for the Continental army and for shipment to the West Indies...The year 1779 was distinguished by the brilliant storming of Stony Point by Gen. Wayne on July 15, followed by the capture of the garrison at Paulus Hook, on the 19th, in both which actions the Marylanders took part."
