9780891417460: What They Didn't Teach You About the American Revolution (What They Didn't Teach You (Paperback))

“Zeroes in on the interesting, irreverent, long-ignored tidbits that shape behavior in all conflicts and important periods of history.”—The Denver Post

What made the founding fathers so great (or were they?). And don’t forget the founding mothers. We have intrigue and skullduggery with spies from Nathan Hale to Benedict Arnold, with enlightening stops on the distaff side of espionage for Patience Wright (no relation to our esteemed author), Lydia Darragh, and Ann Bates.
 
“[Mike] Wright uncovers the gamut of the revolutionary era with a highly readable, breezy narrative style, and some of his speculations eloquently illustrate the ironies always present in grand historical movements. . . . This work will inform, amuse, and provide an interesting perspective on the Revolution.”—Booklist

From Booklist:

In previous volumes of this series, Wright presumed to enlighten us on "secrets" of the Civil War and World War II. Here, he proclaims his goal of demythologizing our founding fathers and the cause for which they fought. For serious students of history, Wright's revelations must seem pompous; little here is new, and in repeating as fact many unverifiable but oft-repeated claims, Wright helps foster new mythologies. Still, he covers the gamut of the revolutionary era with a highly readable, breezy narrative style, and some of his speculations eloquently illustrate the ironies always present in grand historical movements. For general readers, this work will inform, amuse, and occasionally provide an interesting perspective on the Revolution. Jay Freeman
