Summary, etc.: Originally published by UNC Press in 1961, this classic work remains the most comprehensive history of the many and important roles played by African-Americans during the American Revolution. With this book, Benjamin Quarles added a new dimension to the military history of the Revolution and addressed for the first time the diplomatic repercussions created by the British evacuation of African Americans at the close of the war. The compelling narrative brings the Revolution to life by portraying how those tumultuous years were experienced by Americans at all levels of society.
