Explore the Captivating History of the American Revolution In an era where political discourse is becoming increasingly polarized, it is worth reflecting on the circumstances of America’s foundation. This captivating history book presents a general outline of the American Revolution, focusing largely on the period between the outbreak of rebellion in 1765 until the ratification of the US Constitution in 1789. In homage to the original thirteen colonies, the book is divided into thirteen chapters. Chapter 1 outlines the context of the Thirteen Colonies as British colonial possessions. Chapters 2-4 deals with American responses to British attempts to raise taxation in the Thirteen Colonies. Chapter 5 assesses the strengths and weaknesses of the American and British armies at the outbreak of the war, and how these dynamics shifted over the course of the conflict. Chapters 6-10 cover the period of military hostilities from the Declaration of Independence in 1776 to the British surrender at Yorktown in 1781. Chapters 11 and 12 cover the uneasy period of peace during which the central government was unable to resolve disputes between individual states, and the results that came from this. Chapter 13 briefly outlines the key debates and themes that would run through American history in the half-century following the adoption of the Constitution. This book seeks to remind readers that the United States was created by a set of founding fathers who had competing visions, but shared a common set of principles dedicated to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. In The American Revolution: A Captivating Guide to the American Revolutionary War and the United States of America's Struggle for Independence from Great Britain, you will discover topics such as Colonial America The Seven Years’ War and Its Consequences Taxation Without Representation The Road to War David Versus Goliath Independence Washington on the Ropes The International Dimension War in the South Surrender at Yorktown An Imperfect Union A More Perfect Union Manifest Destiny And much, much more!
