The Enduring Importance of the American Revolution

Published under the auspices of the American Revolution Institute of the Society of the Cincinnati, this volume is a lavishly illustrated narrative history of the War for Independence. It tells the pivotal story of the courageous men and women who risked their lives to create a new nation based on the idea that government should serve people and protect their freedom. Freedom argues that the American Revolution is the central event in our history: the turning point between our colonial origins and national experience. Freedom includes 167 full-color paintings, maps, illustrations, and photos—many seen only in historical institutions nationwide. The narrative spans from the American Revolution’s origins like colonial British America—a society in which freedom was limited and in which everyone was the subject of a distant monarch—through the crisis in the British Empire that followed the French and Indian War, to the events of the War for Independence itself, and ultimately to the creation of the first great republic in modern history. This is the story of how Americans came to fight for their freedom and became a united people with a shared history and national identity and how a generation of founders expressed ideals of liberty, equality, natural and civil rights, and responsible citizenship: ideals that have shaped our history and will shape the future world.
