J. F. Cooper Wyandotte; or, The Hutted Knoll

James Fenimore Cooper was a prolific and popular American writer of the first half of the 19th century. His historical romances of frontier and Indian life in the early American days created a unique form of American literature. Wyandotte is set in New York state during the American Revolution. The main character of the novel is an Indian, "Saucy Nick", also called Wyandotte ("Great Chief), whose depictions violate stereo types of Native Americans. The novel Wyandotte arrived at a time when a patriotic mythology about the American Revolution was developing, and Cooper's somber tale of the sufferings of an isolated family in upstate New York during the Revolution was not congruent with the celebratory stories then being told.

Devrim Kabasakal Badamchi The Tension Between Action and Revolution in Arendt.s Thought

In On Revolution, published in 1963, Hannah Arendt constitutes a conceptual duality and even an opposition between the French and American Revolutions implying that the French Revolution is not action whereas the American Revolution is an experience of political action and freedom. The book analyzes her interpretation of the French Revolution and modern revolutions in general under the light of her conception of action developed in The Human Condition, published in 1958. It is argued that, the existentialist and romantic definition of action in The Human Condition requires Arendt to consider the French Revolution as an experience of action in contrast to what she implied in On Revolution. This work aims to reveal the different aspects of the tensious and, in certain ways, problematic relation between action and revolution in Arendt's political thought. For finding out the discontinuities and inconsistencies between her conception of action and her interpretation of the French Revolution, the two primary texts of Arendt (The Human Condition and On Revolution) are analyzed in a detailed manner.

What are the origins of slavery and race-based prejudice in the mainland American colonies? How did the Atlantic slave trade operate to supply African labor to colonial America? How did African-American culture form and evolve? How did the American Revolution affect men and women of African descent? Previous editions of this work depicted African-Americans in the American mainland colonies as their contemporaries saw them: as persons from one of the four continents who interacted economically, socially, and politically in a vast, complex Atlantic world. It showed how the society that resulted in colonial America reflected the mix of Atlantic cultures and that a group of these people eventually used European ideas to support creation of a favorable situation for those largely of European descent, omitting Africans, who constituted their primary labor force. In this fourth edition of African Americans in the Colonial Era: From African Origins through the American Revolution, acclaimed scholar Donald R. Wright offers new interpretations to provide a clear understanding of the Atlantic slave trade and the nature of the early African-American experience. This revised edition incorporates the latest data, a fresh Atlantic perspective, and an updated bibliographical essay to thoroughly explore African-Americans’ African origins, their experience crossing the Atlantic, and their existence in colonial America in a broadened, more nuanced way.

Gregory T. Knouff The Soldiers' Revolution. Pennsylvanians in Arms and the Forging of Early American Identity

What did the American Revolution mean to the ordinary soldiers who fought in it? Were they inspired by high-minded ideals of liberty and democracy, or were they seeking the material and practical rewards-bounties, land, and political advancement-that victory might bring them? We know much about the philosophical positions expressed by America's Founding Fathers, but the common people did not necessarily share the Founders' ideas. The Soldiers' Revolution looks to those who took up arms in Pennsylvania to reveal the rich tapestry of local interests that led a nation to war. Many rank-and-file Revolutionaries left behind records of their experiences-everything from letters and journals to pension applications and loyalist claims. These records bring to light the soldiers' widely ranging ideas and opinions about the war, about themselves, about the enemy, and about the American nation. In Pennsylvania enlisted men defined their communities through various local interests. This general localism was, ironically, one of the few shared popular Revolutionary ideals. Moreover, the experience of military violence was critical in defining broader ideologies of citizenship that contributed to ideas of an emerging American identity-an identity that privileged white men above Indians, African Americans, and women. "Tories," meanwhile, were forced to shed their local perspectives and embrace other ideas in keeping with imperial interests. The Soldiers' Revolution...

George Lippard Washington and His Generals 1776. The Legends of the American Revolution

Published posthumously on the occasion of America's centennial celebration, George Lippard's Washington and His Generals, "1776" compiles into a single volume his five popular books of Revolutionary-era historical fiction. The first book, "The Battle-Day of Germantown", features Lippard's hometown and George Washington's intricate and ultimately overcomplicated assault on the British during the Philadelphia campaign of the American Revolution."The Wissahikon", the second book, depicts the defecting of a Tory to the rebel cause after witnessing General William Howe's failed attempt to bribe a pious George Washington following the British capture of Philadelphia. In "Benedict Arnold", the infamous treachery of the treasonous Continental Army general is the subject.With "The Battle of the Brandywine", Lippard recounts the American despair over the September 11, 1777, battle that drove back the Continental forces, leaving the capital in Philadelphia under British occupation. The collection ends with the fifth book, "The Fourth of July, 1776", his imagined version of the day that inspired most of Lippard's patriotic writing. It includes the often quoted "Speech of the Unknown" given by an anonymous revolutionary, which in the book provided the final impetus for the delegates to sign the Declaration of Independence.

Robert H. Thonhoff The Texas Connection with the American Revolution

All too often, when Americans think of the American Revolution, they think only in terms of the events that occurred in the thirteen English colonies. Important as they were, they do not tell the whole story. An oft-neglected part of it concerns the role of Spain in the American Revolution. A generally unknown part of it is the Texas connection. Overlooked by most historians much too long, the contribution of Spain, Texas included, was vital in the winning of American independence two hundred years ago.

Condorcet. Writings on the United States

Condorcet (1743-1794) was the last of the great eighteenth-century French philosophes and one of the most fervent américanistes of his time. A friend of Franklin, Jefferson, and Paine and a member of the American Philosophical Society, he was well informed and enthusiastic about the American Revolution. Condorcet's writings on the American Revolution, the Federal Constitution, and the new political culture emerging in the United States constitute milestones in the history of French political thought and of French attitudes toward the United States. These remarkable texts, however, have not been available in modern editions or translations. This book presents first or new translations of all of Condorcet's major writings on the United States, including an essay on the impact of the American Revolution on Europe; a commentary on the Federal Constitution, the first such commentary to be published in the Old World; and his Eulogy of Franklin, in which Condorcet paints a vivid picture of his recently deceased friend as the archetype of the new American man: self-made, practical, talented but modest, tolerant and free of prejudice-the embodiment of reason, common sense, and the liberal values of the Enlightenment.

Richard A. Brayall Washington's Savior. General John Glover and the American Revolution

Even today, he still stands guard over Boston, watching all who approach the “cradle of the Revolution” by way of Huntingdon Avenue. His visage remains as strong and determined in bronze as it was in real-life flesh and blood. John Glover has been at this post since 1828, when a grateful Commonwealth of Massachusetts erected this statue to honor the general from Marblehead and his men who time and time again saved the American Revolution from total and final defeat. A true son of Massachusetts, John Glover impressed George Washington at first sight, and the General continued to call on him for special service throughout the war. Glover developed the first American navy early in the conflict, and his ship Hannah was the first armed vessel to fly American colors. Glover and his men saved Washington, the entire army and the Revolution itself at the battles of Brooklyn and Pell’s Point on Long Island. Then, on a cold and wintry night in December of 1776, the “web-footed warriors” from Marblehead rowed the army across the ice-choked Delaware River to Trenton where Washington won his most famous and his most needed victory. This book, based on letters, diaries, memoirs and contemporary papers, makes note that Glover was many things to many people and also had his set of demons to fight. And it shows that John Glover was, as the statue noted, at his best as “a soldier of the Revolution.” Several photographs and an index to full-names, places and subjects add to the value of this wor...

Maya Jasanoff Liberty’s Exiles: The Loss of America and the Remaking of the British Empire.

From the author of ‘Edge of Empire’ comes a fascinating, thought-provoking and alternative history of the American Revolution – that of those Americans who remained loyal to the British Empire.George Washington's triumphant entrance into New York City in 1783 marked the end of the American Revolution; the British were gone, the patriots were back and a key moment inscribed itself in the annals of the emerging United States. Territorial independence had effectively begun.Although widely perceived as a struggle between nations, the reality of the American Revolution is a strikingly different one. This was a war in which Britons fought Britons and Americans fought Americans. It was also one in which hundreds of thousands of American Loyalists, from Georgia to Maine, took Britain's side. And, when George Washington arrived in New York on that November day, they were forced to face up to a very tough situation; would they be free? Would they be safe? Would they retain their property and their jobs? Would they have to leave?As many as 200,000 American Loyalists left the United States. They lost their homes and their possessions and had little choice but to build new lives elsewhere in the British Empire. In ‘The Imperial Exile’, Maya Jasanoff examines the story of the Loyalist refugees, focusing on the life of one woman – Elizabeth Johnston – and her family, who reconstructed their lives in four different imperial settings: St Augustine, Edinburgh, Jamaica and Nova Scotia. Their movements speak eloquently of a larger history of exile, mobility and the shaping of the British Empire in the wake of the American War.A rich, compelling and untold history.

Elizabeth F. Ellet The Women of the American Revolution Volumes I and II

The years of the American Revolution were times of changing loyalties, fierce battles and internecine rivalries, and the women's perspective provided a fresh view for interpretation of the times. In her 1849 volume The Women of the American Revolution, Elizabeth F. Ellet took this task to heart as she recounted in detail the stories of over 120 women who assisted in the fight for freedom. Drawing from a wealth of material - personal interviews, diaries, biographies, and manuscript letters - she probed the details of their personal triumphs and tragedies, and presented them in a popular style easily appreciated by contemporary readers. With her unique documentation, much of which is now lost to present historians, she was able to set intimate scenes for the period and breathe life into her characterizations. She presented women at the hearth and on the battlefield in the same factual yet entertaining manner.While the author recounted the lives of many of the more popular participants - Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, Jane McCrea, and Mercy Warren - she included many lesser-known individuals, as well as women of several nationalities, lending a more balanced and credible view to the course of the narrative.

William Graham Sumner Robert Morris. The Financier and the Finances of the American Revolution, Vol. 2

Robert Morris' tombstone states that he was "The Financier"; officially, however, he was Superintendent of Finance. Whatever his title, Robert Morris played an integral role in financing the American Revolution, and Yale Professor William G. Sumner examines Morris' life and actions to enhance our understanding of the finances of the young nation.In Volume II of a two-volume work, Sumner begins with the events of 1781, when Morris anticipated receiving loans from Spain. From there, Sumner looks at Morris' attempts to secure loans from other nations, his unpopularity and resignation, and the organization of the treasury. Sumner also covers the Bank War of 1785-1786, the Commercial Convention and the Constitutional Convention, Morris' career in the U.S. Senate, and his social standing and business dealings. What should be noted is that while Morris helped to finance the Revolution, he spent three years in prison for personal debts.WILLIAM GRAHAM SUMNER was a professor of political and social science at Yale University and became known as a Social Darwinist and advocate of the laissez faire principle in economics. Besides writing a number of books on sociology, history, and economics, he was also influential in the movement to modernize the American university system.

Judith L. Van Buskirk Standing in Their Own Light. African American Patriots in the American Revolution

The Revolutionary War encompassed at least two struggles: one for freedom from British rule, and another, quieter but no less significant fight for the liberty of African Americans, thousands of whom fought in the Continental Army. Because these veterans left few letters or diaries, their story has remained largely untold, and the significance of their service largely unappreciated. Standing in Their Own Light restores these African American patriots to their rightful place in the historical struggle for independence and the end of racial oppression.Revolutionary era African Americans began their lives in a world that hardly questioned slavery; they finished their days in a world that increasingly contested the existence of the institution. Judith L. Van Buskirk traces this shift to the wartime experiences of African Americans. Mining firsthand sources that include black veterans’ pension files, Van Buskirk examines how the struggle for independence moved from the battlefield to the courthouse—and how personal conflicts contributed to the larger struggle against slavery and legal inequality. Black veterans claimed an American identity based on their willing sacrifice on behalf of American independence. And abolitionists, citing the contributions of black soldiers, adopted the tactics and rhetoric of revolution, personal autonomy, and freedom.Van Buskirk deftly places her findings in the changing context of the time. She notes the varied conditions of slavery before the war, t...

Timothy Lamb The Brothers Four

This book is about four brothers-two older and two younger-who experience multiple life-changing events starting with the murder of their parents on Thanksgiving night in 1985. The older brothers are street savvy, and the younger brothers are book smart. Their journey becomes one of survival because the older brothers make it a point that their younger brothers finish high school and pursue higher education. The older brothers have dead-end jobs, and they resort to hustling in the streets of Detroit. But they were not prepared for what they encounter along the way to money, power, and fortune. They spend countless time reflecting on what they will do when and if they find their parents' killer, and the real twist takes place when they do. To the readers of this book, I hope you find the outcome inspiring.

William Henry Egle Some Pennsylvania Women During the War of the Revolution

Some Pennsylvania Women During the War of the Revolution, first published in 1898 by the Harrisburg Publishing Company, presents biographical sketches of almost seventy women who supported the American Revolution and the soldiers at Valley Forge, noting their lives, family history, character, and the particulars of their roles in the revolutionary effort, including providing food, clothing, shelter, and support for the patriots. As the author writes in his prefatory note, this book aims to bring to light "the patriotism, sufferings, and self-denials" of the women of the American Revolution in Pennsylvania, whom he calls "the Matrons of the Declaration." The book examines the lives of women at the end of the eighteenth century and shows the value of their contributions to the war. "The saviors of our country at Valley Forge, in their raggedness and misery, would have starved," Egle writes, "had it not been for that devoted band of true-hearted loving women whose homes were on or lying near the frontiers of our grand old Commonwealth." This book provides a fitting tribute to these women and their roles in the state's, and nation's, history.

From the author of ‘Edge of Empire’ comes a fascinating, thought-provoking and alternative history of the American Revolution – that of those Americans who remained loyal to the British Empire.George Washington's triumphant entrance into New York City in 1783 marked the end of the American Revolution; the British were gone, the patriots were back and a key moment inscribed itself in the annals of the emerging United States. Territorial independence had effectively begun.Although widely perceived as a struggle between nations, the reality of the American Revolution is a strikingly different one. This was a war in which Britons fought Britons and Americans fought Americans. It was also one in which hundreds of thousands of American Loyalists, from Georgia to Maine, took Britain's side. And, when George Washington arrived in New York on that November day, they were forced to face up to a very tough situation; would they be free? Would they be safe? Would they retain their property and their jobs? Would they have to leave?As many as 200,000 American Loyalists left the United States. They lost their homes and their possessions and had little choice but to build new lives elsewhere in the British Empire. In ‘The Imperial Exile’, Maya Jasanoff examines the story of the Loyalist refugees, focusing on the life of one woman – Elizabeth Johnston – and her family, who reconstructed their lives in four different imperial settings: St Augustine, Edinburgh, Jamaica and Nova Scotia. Their movements speak eloquently of a larger history of exile, mobility and the shaping of the British Empire in the wake of the American War.A rich, compelling and untold history.
