In this concise history of the key years of the American Revolution-- from the Boston Tea Party of 1773 to the Treaty of Paris in 1783--Ellis brings the characters, the battles, and the political machinations to life. Narrator Graham Winton keeps the pace moving as the author discusses what "the cause" meant to various factions as a tug-of-war developed between states' rights and the emerging concept of a union. There are many wonderful portraits of legends like the Marquis de Lafayette and Nathanael Greene, as well as lesser known characters such as George Washington's enslaved valet, William Lee. Those who are curious about the birth of this nation will find this an absorbing and enlightening listen. L.W.S. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2021]
