Overview

When the American Revolution began, thousands of people rushed to join the fight-on both sides. Half a million black slaves lived in the thirteen colonies. About 200,000 American Indians lived on lands east of the Mississippi River. Both groups had much to gain, or lose, depending on which side won the war. Should they support the Americans fighting for independence, or join the British cause? Primary sources bring history to life as author John Micklos, Jr., explores the amazing stories of African Americans and American Indians who fought during the American Revolution.
