This book includes the Author's transcriptions of various microfilmed documents he first reviewed at the National Archives, Washington, D. C., in August 1998. In an effort to obtain a pension, James Lambert explained under oath and in great detail his four Revolutionary War tours of duty; including his engagement in the battle against the Indians at Point Pleasant, West Virginia, and also his participation in the battles against the British at Great Bridge, Virginia, Cowpens, South Carolina, and Guilford Court House, North Carolina. The Author has put the material in chronological order and he has made an effort to verify the accuracy and veracity of James Lambert's Declarations by a thorough analysis of the relevant Revolutionary War history, including these four battles.
