Overview

For more than 150 years, English men and women had planted themselves along the Atlantic Coast of the New World as colonists, intent on creating new lives of possibility and opportunity. But by the 1760s, countless thousands of people who had been loyal to king and country began to question their loyalty. As British policies brought protest and taxes represented tyranny, many colonists ceased to consider themselves English subjects and came to view themselves as Americans seeking independence. But before that new identity and that dream of freedom could become a reality, they would have to engage in a prolonged conflict-the American Revolutionary War. In Revolutionary America: 1764-1789, readers will learn about colonial life and the mechanisms that encouraged America's residents to fight for freedom from the British crown.
