Acclaimed historian John Ferling offers a magisterial new history of the Revolutionary era, a narrative that surges from the first rumblings of colonial protest to the volcanic outburst of 1776. It traces the struggles of the new nation through the bitterly contested election of 1800. It is a study of leadership and the power of ideas. It features the fire and tactical skills of patriots like Patrick Henry and John Adams.
