The Revolution was in the minds of the people, and this was effected from 1760 to 1775, in the course of fifteen years before a drop of blood was drawn at Lexington."
John Adams

"There is nothing more common than to confound the terms of the American Revolution with those of the late American war. The American war is over but this is far from being the case with the American Revolution. On the contrary, nothing but the first act of this great drama is closed."
Dr. Benjamin Rush

Wood's Pulitzer Prize winning book explores the social transformation of Colonial America from Monarchy to Republicanism to Democracy, a change that forced the split from England and a political revolution in America in 1800.
