Library Journal

Taught by narrator and author Allen C. Guelzo (Civil War Inst., Gettysburg Coll., PA), this course surveys the American Revolution from before the outbreak of the war at Lexington and Concord in April 1775 to the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown in 1781. It covers military tactics, strategy, and logistics from both British and American viewpoints and introduces many of the colorful figures of the period, including Native Americans and French and German participants. The 24 half-hour lectures reveal what future U.S. Supreme Court chief justice John Marshall described as the experience of seeing "brave men from different States...fighting in a common cause believed by them to be most precious." Guelzo's lively and interesting lecture style is supplemented with classic portraits and paintings of the people and places he discusses. The accompanying print materials present the background information necessary for further research. History students and interested laypersons will be fascinated.—Margaret B.
