"There is nothing more common than to confound the terms of the American Revolution with those of the late American war. The American war is over, but this is far from being the case with the American Revolution." (Benjamin Rush, 1787.) The war ended, the revolution did not. Alan Taylor's American Revolutions, a Continental History 1750-1804 (Norton, 2016), convincingly shows that our founding story of a united American people rebelling against their British overlords is a myth. Far from being united, Americans were bitterly divided by class, race and religion. Winning the war was the easy part, forming a more perfect union has proven to be a much more difficult task. As Taylor illustrates, the seeds for the divisiveness we experience today were sown early on. By taking a new look at our founding, we will gain a better understanding of what we have become. Join us for an introspective and reflective look back on the founding history of our Republic.
