The Human Tradition in the American Revolutionby Nancy L. Rhoden, Ian K. Steele, Stephen Aron, Edward J. Cashin, David Grimsted
This is a collection of brief biographies of 17 individuals who lived during the Revolutionary period. American society during that time was diverse and divided: it included patriots, loyalists, Native Americans, slaves, free African-Americans, and mercenaries, to name a few. Among the many people readers will meet are loyalists Lachlan McGillivray, an indian trader whose property was confiscated by the revolutionaries; Cherokee warrior and loyalist Dragging Canoe, who struggled to save Native American land from white setters; and Quaker Elizabeth Drinker, who was a pacifist and opponent of slavery.
