A revolution of the overlooked
Drawing from more than a thousand eyewitness accounts, Liberty Is Sweet explores countless connections between the Patriots of 1776 and other Americans whose passion for freedom often brought them into conflict with the Founding Fathers.
Historian Woody Holton describes the genesis and crucial battles of the Revolution from Lexington and Concord to the British surrender at Yorktown, always focusing on marginalized Americans—enslaved Africans and African Americans, Native Americans, women, and dissenters.
Liberty Is Sweet gives us a complete account of the Revolution, from its origins on the frontiers and in the Atlantic ports to the creation of the Constitution. This majestic history revivifies a story we thought we already knew.
