Chronicles of the Revolutionary War organizes the events of the tumultuous birth of the United States into easily read, short chapters. These chapters enliven the story of the American Revolution and capture the spirit of Americas patriot forebears with a balanced account that also respects their British and Tory antagonists. Ideal for students, or even for reading aloud at meetings of historical societies, the book received its inspiration from Patriot Medal recipient Clarence M. Carroll, who has had a lifelong interest in educating the public about American History. Even those who already have an excellent grasp of the history of the Revolutionary War can profit from this book, as it can also serve as a concise outline of that surprisingly broad and expansive subject.

O avtorju (2006)

An historian by education and a writer by profession, Geoffrey A. Todd has lived all over the world, including behind the Iron Curtain in Communist Romania, and in the United Kingdom. Thus, he writes about the genesis of American liberty from a balanced perspective—valuing freedom, but appreciating our British cousins. Clarence M. Carroll, whose Introduction graces the Chronicles, is a recipient of the Patriot Medal, one of the highest honors awarded by the Sons of the American Revolution. The book owes its genesis to his ardent desire for a concise and affordable history of the Revolutionary War that can educate and encourage the citizens of his beloved country, whether newly arrived, or descended from families who have lived in America for generations.
