Who was Joseph Plumb Martin?

Joseph Plumb Martin was a 15-year-old Connecticut boy when he enlisted in 1776. He went on to fight the entire Revolutionary war, not ending his tour of duty until 1783. He was one of the few common soldiers to write about his experiences, leaving behind invaluable-and very colorful-information about life and experiences during the war.
