Excerpt from The Heroes of the American Revolution and Their Descendants: Battle of Long Island
The compiler of the present work has no hope or expectation of being able to present any new facts pertaining to the subject in controversy. His aim, first, is to give the reader a clear and comprehensive view of the facts, compiled from the most authentic sources, by locating and illustrating the several points of interest second, to collect and preserve in permanent form the names and personal record of those who participated in this important event. Says a well known writer on this subject: It is due to the brave combatants of that day, that their names and deeds should be remembered and commemorated, in common with many others more distinguished only because they were more fortunate. Every man, from the commander-in-chief down to the humblest private, was a hero on that day, and deserves to be remembered by his descendants, many of whom are repre sented in the various societies of the Revolution at the present day, and who will no doubt gladly avail themselves of this opportunity to preserve the record and thus perpetuate the memory of their distinguished ancestors.
