Liberty Is Sweet: The Hidden History of the American Revolution
  • Date: Thursday, October 14, 2021
  • Time: 1:00 pm
  • Location: Online

Author Woody Holton will discuss his reassessment of the American Revolution, showing how the Founders were influenced by overlooked Americans—women, Native Americans, African Americans, and religious dissenters. Using more than a thousand eyewitness accounts, Holton describes the origins and crucial battles focusing on marginalized Americans and on overlooked factors such as weather, North American geography, chance, misperception, and (most of all) disease.
