We discuss the American Revolution, i.e., the war that won the American colonists their independence from England. Even though it’s the “American” Revolution, it really was a global war with several major players besides Britain and the colonists. Rather than simply reiterating your basic high school history class, we wanted to discuss some of the stories you’ve maybe never heard and dispel some of the myths that you may have come to accept over the years.
