The Historical Atlas of the American Revolution by Ian Barnes

The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. (from The Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776) By the mid-1700s substantial differences in life, thought, and interests had developed between the British North American Colonies and the mother country. A distinctly American way of life was rapidly developing. In a few years a new nation would be born and the reverberations from the ensuing conflict would be felt throughout the Western world. Detailing the entire history of the struggle for independence, from Colonial governments to the early days of the American Republic,The Historical Atlas of the American Revolutionuses full-color maps and vivid illustrations in two-page spreads to tell the story of the founding of the United States of America. The book focuses in large part on the land and sea battles of the Revolutionary War, butattention is also paid to the society at large and the international impact of the war for independence. Coverage includes: The French and Indian War George Washington in the West Native Americans before the War of Independence Lexington and Concord Saratoga Battle of the Chesapeake Battle of Guilford Courthouse Battle of Yorktown Spanish Operations in the South and West African Americans in the new republic The Constitution Foreign Policy after the War The Emergence of King Cotton This large, beautifully illustrated, historically authoritative book explores these momentous events in an eminently readable and visually stunning manner. The books consulting editor, renowned historian Charles Royster, also contributes a foreword. Also includes 70 color maps and illustrations.
