When he was captured behind enemy lines, the book was still a work in progress.
"It seemed necessary that some record of the accomplishment of the Lafayette Corps be set down, not only for the pleasure of the men who were a part of it, but the others in later days might not forget these volunteers who were among the first Americans to go to the aid of France at a time of great need."
