In the words of the author, "The information which has been secured by the explorations which are herein described, has established the character, as well as the location of most of the fortified places and camps of the troops of the contending Armies of the Revolution, on and around the northern portion of the Island of Manhattan, and comparison of the facts and objects disclosed by the work, with historical records, has resulted in some addition to our knowledge of the difficulties and dangers of that interesting period in our country's history."
