Revolutionary America explains the crucial events in the history of the United States between 1763 and 1815, when settlers of North America rebelled against British rule, won their independence in a long and bloody struggle, and created an enduring republic.
Now in its second edition, Revolutionary America has been completely revised, updating the strengths of the previous edition. New features include:
• New introduction for the second edition.
• New chapter on Native Americans.
• Revised and expanded bibliographic essay.
• Updated historiography throughout the text.
• Companion Website with study aids, maps, and documentary resources.
Revolutionary America also examines those who were excluded from the immediate benefits and rights secured by the creation of the new republic. In particular, author Francis D. Cogliano describes the experiences of women, Native Americans, and African Americans, each of whose experiences challenged the principle that "all men are created equal," which lay at the heart of the American Revolution.
Placing the political revolution at the core of the story, Revolutionary America presents a clear history of the War of Independence, and lays a distinctive foundation for students and scholars of the Early Republic.
