Author was the leading loyalist in Pennsylvania. Before the war he had been Speaker of the Pennsylvania Assembly and member of the First Continental Congress. During General William Howe's 1777-1778 campaign in Pennsylvania, Galloway was the city administrator of Philadelphia. After the retaking of Philadelphia by the Americans, Galloway fled to London in 1778. This work is a criticism of the British generals especially William Howe.
