LIFE The American Revolution [electronic resource]

It was the war that gave birth to the United States, the world’s first—and today, oldest—liberal democracy. The Revolution liberated the 13 colonies from British rule and created heroes and battles now secure in national lore: George Washington. Paul Revere. Alexander Hamilton. The Battles of Bunker Hill, Saratoga, and Yorktown. But what led these heroes to upturn their lives of comfort for the dangerous pursuit of the difficult ideals of freedom and equality? What happened to them and their fellow patriots on the battlefield? Who led? Who followed? Who were the traitors? Who were the spies? This LIFE special edition goes behind the scenes to understand one of history’s most important events. It captures the drama of the war through stunning imagery and a fast-paced narrative, while bringing to life the stories of the men and women who sacrificed so much for future generations.
