Reviews

"Tightly though densely written, this expertly researched tome shakes the "stainless steel" history of the American Revolution to its core." --Publishers Weekly

"You will never think about the Revolution in the same way." --Alfred F. Young, author of Masquerade: The Life and Times of Deborah Sampson, Continental Soldier

"What Nash does in The Unknown American Revolution is dislodge the founding fathers to give the dynamism of urban craftsmen, slaves, 'dockside tars, ' and 'club-wielding farmers' a more prominent place in the history of the movement." --The Boston Globe
