Summary
The era of the American Revolution was a defining moment in history. It bore witness to the transformation of colonists into citizens of a new nation and the setting of goals for a free people by which to guide posterity. Original materials for writing the history of the Revolution are abundant, and during the past half-century historians have expanded the prospects for study of the Revolutionary War era. Although much remains to be accomplished, new studies have added greatly to our knowledge of the establishment of Independence and the birth of the Republic, and new perspectives have been initiated. The American Revolution: Nationhood Achieved, 1763-1788 draws on the multifaceted contributions of recent historiography, as well as older sources and primary sources, in presenting a measured overview of the Revolutionary experience. It embraces not just the war or ideology or political development but also the people behind the scenes whose lives were affected by the war. Professor Ward provides a fresh view of the experience during this period, giving the reader an understanding of the events and the decisions that gave meaning to American character and nationhood
