The Life of Sir Harry Smith here offered to the public consists of an Autobiography covering the period 1787 to 1846 (illustrated by notes and appendices), and some supplementary chapters contributed by myself on the last period of Sir Harry's life (1846 Chapter XXXI. Carries the reader to the year 1829. This, it is interesting to remark, is a true turning point in the life of the great soldier. Till then he had seen warfare only on two continents, Europe and America (the Peninsula, France, the Netherlands, Monte Video, Buenos Ayres, Washington, New Orleans); from that date onwards the scene of his active service was Africa and Asia Till 1829 his responsibility was small after 1829 he had a large or paramount share in directing the Operations in which he was engaged. This difference naturally affects the tone of his narrative in the two periods.
The Autobiography (called by its author Various Anecdotes and Events of my Life was begun by Sir Harry Smith, then lieutenant-colonel Smith.
