The dramatic conclusion to the American Revolution and the spirited beginning of a new nation
Following on the success of The Day the Revolution Began, William Hallahan's new book tells the story of the American victory through the eyes of those who were there-using diaries, journals, memoirs, newspapers, letters, official documents, and other eyewitness accounts. Hallahan first shows the tense chess game of troop movements, skirmishes and tooth-and-nail battles that brought the American forces, their French allies, and the British troops to their fateful encounter at Yorktown. We see the traitorous Arnold fighting against his homeland, the vicious war between patriots and Tories in the Carolinas, the magnificent Lafayette, the haughty Cornwallis, the ever-determined Washington, and the bravery of general and common soldier alike. Once the British surrender, the book then follows the news of the battle north, city by city, to Boston, then on to London and Paris, depicting a nation taking its first steps towards brilliance.
William H. Hallahan (Cherry Hill, NJ) is the author of several books, including The Day the American Revolution Began: 19 April 1775.
