Revolutionary American History

American Revolution

This is a friendly group of people interested in reading great books about the American Revolutionary Period c.1763 to 1789. It is intended to cover surveys of the American Revolution.

If there is interest, we can start specific focus groups about topics such as the Revolutionary Caribbean and Mexico, the War for Independence and American National Formation.

This group intends to be broadly about Revolutionary America in the area that would become the mainland United States and we sometimes read beyond the traditional timeframe.

Thank you for your interest.
