Summary
Why did the American Revolution take place? It was about more than the dates and details we all know: war elephants charging a fort in India and high-stakes gambles of bankers in Scotland, among other events, also played a part in the "real revolution" in the minds of the entire population of what would become the United States
Summary
Centers on events in the mid-eighteenth century that enabled Americans to give up their loyalty to England and form their own nation, shedding new light on familiar aspects of American history
