Who shall write the history of the American Revolution? Who can write it? asked John Adams in 1815. Renowned scholars Henry Steele Commager and Richard B. Morris have provided a prudent, perceptive answer--the participants themselves--and in the process have fashioned from the vast source material a thrilling chronological narrative. The Spirit of 'Seventy-Six allows readers to experience events long-entombed in textbooks as they unfold for the first time for both Loyalists and Patriots: the Boston Tea Party, Bunker Hill, the Declaration of Independence, and more. In letters, journals, diaries, official documents, and personal recollections, the timeless figures of the Revolution emerge in all their human splendor and folly to stand beside the nameless soldiers. Profusely illustrated and enhanced by cogent commentary, this book examines every aspect of the war, including the Loyalist and British views; treason and prison escapes; songs and ballads; the home front and diplomacy abroad. In short, the editors have wrought a balanced, sweeping, and compelling documentary history

"The focus of the book has been fixed on facets and issues of the Revolutionary Era which still have a compelling relevance to our own time -- the issues which impelled the colonists to secede from the Empire, the rise of anti-monarchical and republican sentiment, the growth of revolutionary organizations, and the restraints imposed upon social violence by the Revolutionary elite which directed, from beginning to end, the first successful movement of decolonization in modern times. Consideration is given as well to the ideological principles which moved the colonists toward revolution and which inspired their notions of constitutionalism, impelled them to seek limitations on governmental authority, and cautioned them to be doubly sure that civil liberties be explicitly safeguarded. Lastly, documentation is provided, at least in a suggestive way, to illuminate the egalitarian, social and cultural transformation which the American Revolution triggered." [Author]
