Description
In 1996, Congress commissioned the National Park Service to compile a list of sites and landmarks connected with the American Revolution to preserve for future generations. Some of these 147 sites are well known (Bunker Hill, Valley Forge, Fort Ticonderoga), while others have been nearly forgotten (Blackstock's Plantation in South Carolina, Bryan's Station in Kentucky), yet all are essential to our fight for independence. Beginning with Boston Common, first occupied by British troops in 1768, and closing with Fraunces Tavern in New York, where George Washington bid farewell to his officers on December 4, 1783, Frances Kennedy takes readers on a tour of the most significant places of Revolutionary history. Accompanied by historical maps, as well as a number of primary documents—including the Declaration of Independence and letters from John Adams and George Washington—the book offers a comprehensive picture of how the Revolutionary War unfolded on American soil, and also points readers to the best writing on the subject in the last 50 years. "Frances Kennedy deftly blends the finest historical writing on the Revolution to create a vibrant portrait of a society and a continent on fire. That the volume doubles as an invaluable guide for the history-minded traveler is a remarkable bonus."—David O. Stewart
