Our First Revolution


Our First Revolution: The Remarkable British Upheaval That Inspired America’s Founding Fathers by Michael Barone. Most of us know about the 1688-89 “Glorious Revolution” that ousted the Stuarts and installed William and Mary, but Barone makes a highly readable, strong case for it as the intellectual precursor of the American Revolution.
