American Revolution

Posted by Andréa on December 1, 2000 at 21:25:31:

Hi Scott,
I'm planning on doing some reading on the topic of American Revolution. I'm very fond of history and since Im so interested in The Patriot at the moment, I'd like to go a little deeper on this specifc theme. Would you have some good book to recommend me? Preferably, something that can be purchased from online bookstores, such as Amazon.
Thanks,
Andréa

Hey Andrea,
That's actually a tough question, because there are many different parts to the history of the revolution. I have managed to go through two books so far that were specifically about the war in the South. As I get time, I will be reading,
and posting reviews of the books on the website.The first two that I've come across are:
1. Southern Campaigns of the American Revolution by Dan Morrill
Its only about 180 pages (plus chronology and index), but is a good primer for the whole situation in the South up until Yorktown.
2. The Road to Guilford Courthouse by John Buchanon
This one is 400 pages (plus index and a very useful bibliography).
I haven't finished reading this one just yet, but its more detailed and cuts off after Guilford Courthouse. It even has a useful section that gives page-long biographies on major figures involved and the bibliography talks about what was found in each source.
These two books are available through Amazon.com and I will be linking to them and others from this site as I read and review them.
