9781331098317: The Struggle for American Independence, Vol. 1 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Struggle for American Independence, Vol. 1

The present work is a continuation and enlargement of The True History of the American Revolution, published some years ago in one volume. That work, while being a brief general account of the contest, dwelt more particularly on cer tain phases of the struggle which had been omitted or ignored by the historians. It soon became obvious that it did not go far enough, that the original plan should be extended and car ried out in more detail, and that the whole mass of original evidence in libraries and historical societies should be made accessible, and revealed to the public in as complete a manner as possible. Our people have little or no conception of what the Revolution really was, no conception of the nature of the original evidence; and the unwillingness of our writers of gen eral histories to cite that evidence keeps it a sealed book to the public.

Our national feeling is bound up in the Revolution, and the extreme importance of such an event, which was the foundation of our nationality and of the political and social principles by which we are still guided, seems to deserve all the light that it is possible to obtain. We naturally want to know the origin of our political existence and exactly why and how we broke away from that great empire which since then has never allowed another dependency to escape, which has reduced republics to colonies, and brought into subjection innumerable peoples and races, and whose rule. We are told, is an unmixed blessing, far preferable to independence.
