Overview

Three to Ride chronicles the events leading to the actions taken by British colonists in America against British troops, ultimately concluding in independence for the colonies. The subject is explored over time, beginning with discord between a number of English subjects and the religious teachings of both the Church of England and the Catholic Church. The intervening years between the first settlements in America and the breakout of hostilities against Britain are discussed in an effort to examine the colonists’ mindset in their rejection of subservience to Great Britain. The history that drove the American colonists to rebellion is fascinating and engrossing; understanding the attitudes and actions of the colonists who experienced this history is likewise compelling. Three to Ride presents the courage of singular individuals and groups during a momentous period.

Meet the Author

John C. Redmond received his B.S. degree from the University of North Dakota and his Ph.D. from The Pennsylvania State University. He presently resides in Parker County, Texas. When Dr. Redmond first strode onto the historic Village Green in Lexington, Massachusetts, many decades ago, he was captivated by memories of the long ago patriots who fought and died there. He marveled at the courage and resolve exhibited in their intrepid pursuit of freedom. Since that time he has studied the motivations and actions of all of the American freedom fighters in initiating their battle for independence. This work is the cumulating of that research; an interesting, easily readable accounting of the revolution they launched.
