03.jpg (5149 octets)Setting the World Ablaze : Washington, Adams, Jefferson and the American Revolution
by John E. Ferling

So many books have already been published about the American Revolution as well as about Washington, Adams, and Jefferson. Ferling brilliantly analyzes all three towering figures within a specific historical context, to be sure, but also in terms of each other. He creates and then explores a matrix of juxtapositions between and among them, comparing and contrasting all three in relation to each other but also in relation to the historical context on which each had such a profound impact...

04.jpg (5931 octets)The Anti-Federalist Papers and the Constitutional Convention Debates
by Ralph Ketcham 

These often intense and fiery speeches made by the Anti-Federalists or the detractors of the Constitution (as it was being written and then debated) are powerful, passionate and sharp enough to make one feel these words were meant to be weapons, i.e., the front line defense of the freedom and liberty we so easily take for granted today...

by W. J. Wood

This is one of the best books on the battles of the American Revolution. having much of the smell of gunpowder about it, the author tells a straightforward tale of courage, hardship, defeat, and, finally, victory by an army of hard-bitten Continentals who became professionals through endurance, deadly on the job training, and the leadership of some of the best combat commanders in American history.  Amazon Review.

13.jpg (5849 octets)The Day the American Revolution Began: 19 April 1775
by William H. Hallihan

The shot heard round the world traveled at slightly less than the speed of sound, as the news of its firing took four days to travel from Lexington Green to New York, five days to Philadelphia, and more than five weeks to distant London.  William H.

15.jpg (6307 octets)The Glorious Cause : The American Revolution, 1763-1789
by Robert Middlekauff

Many histories of the American Revolution are written as if on stained glass, with George Washington's forces of good battling King George III's redcoat devils. The actual events were, of course, far more complex than that, and Robert Middlekauff undertakes the difficult task of separating the real from the mythic with great success... Amazon Review

16.jpg (5801 octets)Radicalism of the American Revolution
by Gordon S. Wood

Perhaps, as is often noted, the American Revolution was not as convulsive or transforming as its French and Russian counterparts. Yet this sparkling analysis from Wood (History/Brown Univ.; ed., The Rising Glory of America, 1971) impressively argues that it was anything but conservative... Kirkus Reviews

17.jpg (4981 octets)Paul Revere's Ride
by David Hackett Fischer

The book is meticulously researched and extremely thorough. Hackett's history of Paul Revere, British General Gage and all the surrounding times, people, places and events pulls together what was happening just prior to the Revolutionary War.  Not only is it wonderful as a history book, but it's a fun and interesting read; if all history books were so interesting, fewer history students would be bored.  Amazon Review.

23.jpg (5835 octets)Inheriting the Revolution:  The First Generation of Americans
by Joyce Oldham Appleby

An excellent historical analysis of post American Revolution cultural and character regional developments responsible for much of the future general nature -- religious, economic, and social -- of both male and female Americans. It gives what might be considered a "true" picture of early 19th century U.S. history, not one that has been "cleaned up" to protect ancestry. It is a profound, in-depth work of the true scholar and historian to be thoroughly enjoyed. One learns much from such historical preparation.  Amazon Review.

26.jpg (6903 octets)A Devil of a Whipping: The Battle of Cowpens
by Lawrence E. Babits

It's easy to forget that the British won most of the battles during the American Revolution. The Americans certainly carried the day at Saratoga and Yorktown, but they were beaten again and again by their enemy elsewhere--and often badly. So it's especially odd that the Battle of Cowpens, fought in South Carolina on January 17, 1781, isn't better remembered in American imagination... Amazon Review.

The Voices of 1776 : The Story of the American Revolution in the Words of Those Who Were There
by Richard Wheeler (Editor), Bruce Catton

An excellent book for anyone interested in obtaining detail, from a participant's viewpoint, that most history books lack. If anyone would enjoy time traveling, he would enjoy chapter 31 which focuses on John Paul Jones and the famous battle which made him legendary. The troubles that one faced during battles aboard wooden vessels was amazing, and, simultaneously amusing! A must read for those interested in the thinking process of the participants. Chapter 31 was my favorite chapter of the whole book and I strongly recommend it to any navy personnel who has or wants a future in the navy.  Amazon Review.
