Alan Taylor: "Transforming the Continent: Natives, Settlers, Empires, and States."

Join Alan Taylor as he discusses his book, American Revolutions: A Continental History, 1750-1804. Taylor will examine the way we think about the American Revolution and provides a fresh portrayal of the events surrounding our nation’s founding. 

Taylor, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Foundation Professor of History at the University of Virginia, is the author of many acclaimed books in early American history and has twice been awarded the Pulitzer Prize in History; in 1996 for William Cooper's Town: Power and Persuasion on the Frontier of the Early American Republic and in 2014 for The Internal Enemy: Slavery and War in Virginia, 1772–1832.

American Revolutions is a game changera sprawling, ambitious history that forever alters our understanding of the Revolutionary War era.”    

-Elizabeth Fenn, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Encounters at the Heart of the World: A History of the Mandan People and Clements Price Fellow (1996)
