The history of the American Revolution is often framed from the perspective of the patriots who waged the war, but in this history—winner of the Journal of the American Revolution's Book of the Year Award and a finalist for the George Washington Book Prize—Kathleen DuVal looks at the era through the eyes of slaves, Native Americans, women, and British loyalists living along America's Gulf Coast. DuVal introduces us to the Mobile, Alabama, slave Petit Jean, who organized militias to fight the British at sea; the Chickasaw diplomat Payamataha, who worked to keep his people out of war; the Cajun refugee Amand Broussard, who spent a lifetime in conflict with the British; and Scottish loyalists James and Isabella Bruce, whose work on behalf of the Empire placed them in grave danger.
