Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A sweeping narrative of the wartime experience, A People's History of the American Revolution is the first book to view the revolution through the eyes of common folk. Their stories have long been overlooked in the mythic telling of America's founding, but are crucial to a comprehensive understanding of the fight for independence. Now, the experiences of farmers, laborers, rank and file soldiers, women, Native Americans, and African Americans — found in diaries, letters, memoirs and other long-ignored primary sources — create a gritty account of rebellion, filled with ideals and outrage, loss, sacrifice, and sometimes scurrilous acts...but always ringing with truth.

Synopsis:

This first book in a new series weaves diaries, personal accounts, and memoirs to provide a remarkable first-person narrative of the events leading up to the American Revolution and the war itself.

Synopsis:

"Raphael rounds out his narrative with fresh voices and well-researched primary sources"
