The American Revolution weaves a wealth of primary source material into a compelling narrative to provide a comprehensive overview of the revolutionary era. Coverage includes the period from the inception of the French and Indian War to Washington's farewell to Congress, with particular emphasis on the years of the war itself, from 1775 to 1781. Each chapter begins with an introductory essay summarizing important themes, followed by a chronology that offers an account of key events. Hundreds of excerpts from contemporary newspapers, diaries, letters, speeches, and memoirs, including entries from George Washington's personal journal, further illustrate events of the era and how they were perceived by those who lived through them. In addition to presenting an in-depth exploration of the American Revolution, its causes, and its conclusion, the volume also highlights developments in science, art, and literature to enhance readers' overall understanding of the period.
