1776: America and Britain At War PDF by David McCullough

1776: America and Britain at War PDF by David McCullough is a book that documents all the major events of the American Civil War.

Although it primarily focuses on George Washington’s ability to lead his people, there are more than a few thoughtful references to the great leaders of that war.

Although the book contains many political affairs, it mainly deals with the military aspect of the Civil War.

America and Britain At War: Bibliography

America And Britain At War PDF: In addition, I have relied on a number of exceptional secondary works on the war overall: Angel in the Whirlwind by Benson Bobrick; The War for America, 1775–1783 by Piers Mackesy; The Glorious Cause by Robert Middlekauff; A Revolutionary People at War by Charles Royster; and People Numerous and Armed by John Shy.

Christopher Ward’s two-volumes War of the Revolution, published more than fifty years ago, remains an excellent military study.

Don Higginbotham’sThe War of American Independence is masterful, clear, and balanced. (Its bibliographical essay is especially valuable.) And the grand old multivolume classic, The American Revolution by Sir George Otto Trevelyan, first published in 1899, is a joy for the prose alone, but also filled with illuminating observations and details to be found almost nowhere else.

Of the books on the war in 1776, four are first-rate and essential: Washington’s Crossing by David Hackett Fischer;1776: Year of Illusions by Thomas Fleming; The Year That Tried Men’s Souls by Merritt Early; and The Winter Soldiers by Richard M. Ketchum.

And four skillfully edited anthologies of the letters and reminiscences of many who played a part in the war, both American and British, have been mainstays: The Spirit of ’Seventy-Six, in two volumes, edited by Henry Steele Commager and Richard B. Morris; The Revolution Remembered, edited by John C. Dann; Rebels and Redcoats, edited by George F. Scheer and Hugh F. Rankin; and Letters on the American Revolution, 1774– 1776, edited by Margaret Wheeler Willard.

One of the early surprises of my research was to find how very much material there is on the Siege of Boston. (I could readily have focused on that alone.) Yet for some strange reason, it is a subject that has been largely overlooked by historians for years.

The one book of consequence, The First Year of the American Revolution by Allen French, was published in 1934. But it is an expert study, and in combination with Mr French’s extensive notes, on file at the Massachusetts Historical Society, it has been invaluable.

For the war in New York, the best accounts are under the Guns and Battle for Manhattan, both by Bruce Bliven, Jr.; The Battle of Long Island by Eric I. Manders; The Battle of Brooklyn, 1776 by John J. Gallagher; and The Battle for New York by Barnet Schecter.

The earliest scholarly work, The Campaign of 1776 Around New York and Brooklyn, written by Henry P. Johnston and published by the Long Island Historical Society in 1878, has been indispensable

… The old white-frame homestead at East Greenwich, Rhode Island, where Nathanael Greene was born and raised, still stands and still belongs to the Greene family. Its treasures include the cradle Nathanael Greene was rocked in, numbers of his books, and even the musket he bought from a British deserter before marching off to war.

The handsome, foursquare house Greene built shortly before he was married also still stands at Covington, Rhode Island, near the site of his iron foundry.

Mount Vernon, Washington’s home in Virginia, is in many ways the autobiography that Washington never wrote, in all that it tells us about him.

Then there are two that served as his headquarters during the course of 1776, the magnificent Longfellow House, as it has long been known, on Brattle Street in Cambridge, and the Morris-Jumel Mansion on Jumel Terrace in New York City, off 160th Street.

With the exception of the Greene homestead at East Greenwich, all of these great houses are open to the public, and in their way, their old walls can truly talk. source: America and Britain At War pdf, p: 318.
