This is a rebuttal to the historian George Bancroft's attribution of cowardice to the general.
The author, George Lee Schuyler (1811-1890), was the grandson of Major General Philip Schuyler. He married Mary Morris Hamilton, who in addition to being the granddaughter of Alexander Hamilton, was also the great-granddaughter of Major General Philip Schuyler (the Hamiltons and the Schuylers were closely connected families). The author was also one of the founders of the New York Yacht Club and one of the owners of the schooner yacht America (the first America's Cup winner).
