THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION: A WORLD WAR NO ONE KNOWS
The long-standing mythology of the American Revolution, American Exceptionalism and the founding of the first modern democracy is supported by the interpretation of history that American colonists of Great Britain were the first of their kind to win independence from a European empire in a war fought on their soil, virtually on their own. In this class discover how looking at the American Revolution in a broader context as a World War fought by Great Britain on four fronts with dozens of countries involved changes the narrative of our founding story.
