Published in 1915.

'To commemorate the centenary of that battle and the completion of one hundred years of peace between the United Kingdom of Great Britain and the United States of America '

The most comprehensive study of the campaign and battle is Robin Reilly's The British at the Gates. Highly recommended if anyone is interested.

Reilly, and other historians, definitely dispel the myth that the battle was won by American riflemen. The overwhelming majority of the British casualties were caused by artillery fire, with most of the remainder by American musket fire.
