Journals from the American Revolution are few and far between, and ones from the common soldier are almost nonexistent. Pvt. Joseph Plumb Martin, was one of latter, that suffered and sacrificed as many of our ancestors had to make the country what it is today. The journal is called “A Narrative of a Revolutionary Soldier by Joseph Plumb Martin”. It was originally published in the 1830, when Martin was an elderly man, but his diary begins in the early days of the war when he was a young spirited teenager and follows him through out the war. Here is the audio book on YouTube:
