The author tells us in the preface to this edition “I have added a full and succinct account of the battle fought at Oldbridge, in 1690, generally known as ‘The Battle of the Boyne;’ and have, I think, given a clearer and fairer account of that memorable transaction, which is so intimately connected with the history of Europe at that time.”
