Richard H. Brown and Paul E. Cohen will discuss their book Revolution: Mapping the Road to American Independence in a series of three talks in California, January 26, 27, and 28.
Revolution is the story of the French and Indian War and Revolution told using maps of the era. The seeds of the revolution were planted during the French and Indian War and a number of both British and rebel participants cut their teeth for the revolution during this war. The maps come from
