Long DescriptionPraise for William Hallahan’s The Day the american Revolution Began "Hallahan has successfully evoked all the passion and drama of the birth of the American Revolution." –– Booklist "A page-turning narrative . . . in-depth profiles of the actors . . . adds a delightful human dimension to the story of the struggle for freedom." –– Virginian Pilot Following the success of William Hallahan’s The Day the American Revolution Began, here is the dramatic conclusion to the American Revolution and the spirited beginning of a new nation. The Day the Revolution Ended vividly tells the story of America’s victory through the eyes of those who lived it. Using such rich primary sources as diaries, journals, memoirs, newspapers, letters, official documents, and other eyewitness accounts, The Day the Revolution Ended traces the tense chess game of troop movements, skirmishes, and tooth-and-nail battles that brought the American forces, their French allies, the British troops, and the Hessian mercenary soldiers to their fateful encounter at Yorktown. Hallahan paints a sharp portrait of the events and the colorful players in the war, including Benedict Arnold’s seething vengeance, Nathanael Greene’s ability to turn even a retreat into a victory, Lafayette’s military ardor, General Clinton’s incompetent leadership, and Washington’s high-stakes battles, as well as the extraordinary bravery of both generals and common soldiers alike. William Hallahan’s skillful and colorful narrative details the exuberance of the new nation, as news of England’s surrender travels north, city by city, to Philadelphia, New York, Boston, then on to London and Paris, and our young nation takes its first steps toward fulfilling its brilliant destiny.
