“With symphonic sweep, cinematic detail and compelling, superbly researched real-life characters, Shorto shows how our struggle for freedom began and why it remains so sadly unfinished. If Spielberg wrote history, this is how it would read.” - Howard Fineman, NBC News analyst and author of The Thirteen American Arguments. Russell Shorto is the best-selling author of The Island at the Center of the World and a contributing writer at the New York Times Magazine. REVOLUTION SONG is an intimate new epic of the American Revolution that reinforces its meaning for today.
