American Revolution

This map, “American Revolution,” exists on Google Maps and owes its greatest debt to Gordon Wood’s The American Revolution (2002), but also incorporates a host of online resources from Dickinson College and elsewhere.

HOW TO USE

Click on menu (upper left) for a chronological listing of place marks arranged in three layers (Colonial Crisis, War for Independence and Building a Republic) in order to find coverage of the period roughly from 1765-1788 with a concentration on the Revolutionary War itself.  Each blue-and-gold Dickinosn placemark contains images with short snippets of text from Gordon Wood’s The American Revolution (Modern Library, 2002), followed by links to the full text of related primary sources.
