The History of the American Revolution has enjoyed a resurgence of interest in the last twenty-five years. We learn from Ramsay the interpreter of his present and his past. We learn about the intellectual predilections of the eighteenth-century historian: the values, assumptions, principles, and expectations of one who lived and wrote amidst the events he narrated.

My hope was to learn about the major battle.
This book provides far more than that; namely,
a breadth of context that situates the war within
the situation that permits its meaning to emerge.

This book is an excellent source on the American Revolution. I especially like the level of detail on the causes that led to the war. My only complaint is that mr. Ramsey's punctuation setimes made the reading difficult. Otherwise a great book.

As stated in the title, what the book covered in almost its entirety were the major events leading up to the beginning of the American Revolution. Although the book was written in 1789 by an American colonist his opinions on such matters as taxation and the various legal issues that were the seeds of the conflict are unbiased. He does a great job of relaying the mixed feelings of the colonists and the native peoples of the "mother country". Excellent perspective from which to study the conflict and its key actors. The type takes a little getting used to because of the grammar and the use of the letter "f" in place of "s" but after a few pages you don't even notice. I would not recommend this book for the average reader looking for information on the war but if you are interested in a well researched and first hand account of the details then its the book for you.

The author was a member of congress and professes that he had access to documents and information that was essential to writing an accurate account. Be advised though, I ordered this book not knowing that it is only volume one of a two volume collection.

i have not read this through yet. This download begins with the battles of 1777 and is part 2 of this series. My early impression of part 2 is that it looks good and will be a very interesting read. It would be nice to find part 1 though.
