This collection, which Dr. Brundage helped to edit, offers a unique survey of the evolution of the American Revolution, from the event itself to the ways it set the stage for the Civil War. The contributors are well-respected scholars from across the globe and a wide range of disciplines.
“This book is a significant contribution to our understanding of how Americans in the early republic molded the memory of the nation’s founding event. Edited by an international team of scholars with a combined expertise in the Revolution and in memory studies, the contributors apply an impressive array of approaches to early republic cultural productions.” – Andrew M. Schocket, Journal of the Early Republic
“Utilizing sources including emotive poems, diaries, contemporary histories, worship events, and pension applications, the editors and authors created a nuanced volume cogently exploring issues of memory studies and the American Revolution that is highly recommended for scholars in either [American Revolution or Civil War] field.” – A. Criblez, Journal of American History
