With the possible exception of the Civil War, no other period in American history rivals the American Revolution in importance. Originating in 1775 as disorganized, local violence over rights and taxes, it quickly escalated into full-blown armed conflict. By the time the Treaty of Paris was signed in 1783, a new nation had emerged. Offering a day-by-day chronology of the people and events important to the American Revolution, Revolutionary War Almanac provides an up-close look at this historic time. The A-to-Z dictionary covers people, battles, and other exciting details.
