Review of The Birth of the Republic by Edmund Morgan

The Birth of the Republic, 1763-89 - Edmund S. Morgan, Daniel J. Boorstin

A classic history of the American Revolutionary Era.  I think this book would be more appreciated by someone being introduced to the time period, but even as someone who has read a great deal about the Revolution, I appreciated this book and its perspective.  It does an excellent job telling the big picture story, while providing the important facts that make the time period such a great story.
