Drawn from letters, diaries, newspaper articles, public declarations, contemporary narratives, and private memoranda,  The American Revolution  brings together over 120 pieces by more than 70 participants to create a unique literary panorama of the War of Independence. From Paul Revere's own narrative of his ride in April 1775 to an account of George Washington's resignation from command of the Army in December 1783, the volume presents firsthand all the major events of the conflict-the early battles of Lexington, Concord, and Bunker Hill; the failed American invasion of Canada; the battle of Saratoga; the fighting in the South and along the western frontier; and the decisive triumph at Yorktown.  The American Revolution  includes a chronology of events, biographical and explanatory notes, and an index.
