The Schlager Anthology of the American Revolution offers an accessible, inclusive sourcebook covering a pivotal era in U.S. history. The set features carefully curated primary sources along with highly targeted activities to help students engage with and analyze primary documents from the British presence in North America in the 1750s to the war's aftermath in the 1780s. Presenting marginalized voices, from women to African Americans to Native Americans, this anthology represents a modern approach to historical reference. Document texts are abridged to remain brief and accessible, even to struggling readers (including ESL students), while activity questions range in difficulty from basic to more advanced. Edited by Jon Chandler (War, Patriotism and Identity in Revolutionary North America) and featuring the contributions of numerous scholars, The Schlager Anthology of the American Revolution is an essential reference for students, researchers, and teachers of early U.S. history.
