Synopsis

The American Revolution vividly illustrates through a collection of fascinating primary documents how, in the space of a few hundred years, contented colonists would form an independent country that could challenge the greatest world power of the time -- and win. Steven C. Bullock turns to such documents as Common Sense, the Declaration of Independence, diaries, newspaper debates, slave petitions, and a pictorial essay on Paul Revere, showingthat the words and actions of common men as well as great men played important roles in making the Revolution not just a coup d'Etat, but a genuine change that shook the foundations of authority and dramatically changed American society.
