Overview

Jonathan Sewall, an aristocratic Boston Loyalist, was born into a bankrupt branch of a prominent Massachusetts family in 1728. He developed a friendship with John Adams that survived the Revolutionary War personally but not politically.Sewall sought to avoid confrontation with his revolutionary friends while remaining independent in his appointed post as a publicist to the King of England, but was trapped in the political hierarchy of colonial Massachusetts. Unnerved by the Boston Massacre, Sewall retired to the country to avoid prosecuting the British soldiers. When the Revolution began in earnest Sewall took refuge in England, confident that a quick British victory would return him to Massachusetts. Jonathan Sewall is a compelling story of the passions and paradoxes of a country in the throes of the Revolution.
