Summary
"Iconoclastic historian and bestselling author Kevin Phillips punctures the myth that 1776 was the watershed year of the American Revolution. He suggests that the great events and confrontations of 1775--Congress's belligerent economic ultimatums to Britain, New England's 'rage militaire,' the exodus of British troops and expulsion of royal governors up and down the seaboard, and the new provincial congresses and hundreds of local committees that quickly reconstituted local authority in Patriot hands---achieved a sweeping Patriot control of territory and local government that Britain was never able to overcome."--
Summary
An unconventional assessment of the American Revolution by the author of the Pulitzer Prize finalist The Cousins' War assesses the events, politics, economic factors and military preparations of 1775 that he believes ignited the war and established patriot control over American governance and key territories
