Richard Koontz Memorial Lecture Series: "Warfare and Society in the American Revolution"

In 1760, an Englishman traveling through the British North American colonies remarked that they were so different that if “left to themselves, there would be civil war among them.”  Fifteen years later, thirteen of those colonies were at war with Great Britain.  Dr. Lee’s presentation explores how, notwithstanding great diversity and provincialism, Americans shaped and sustained the long war effort and, in turn, how the often desperate struggle for Independence shaped the nation-to-be and its citizenry.
