Willard Sterne Randall with Unshackling America

Thu, July 6, 7pm
at The Residence at Otter Creek

Willard Sterne Randall will read from his new book, Unshackling America: How the War of 1812 Truly Ended the American Revolution. Randall, author of Ethan Allen and Alexander Hamilton, among others, "challenges the traditional notion that the War of 1812 was a second American Revolution. Instead, he lays out a convincing case that this war must be seen as the culmination of the American struggle for independence from Great Britain that began in 1776. A consummate stylist, Randall captures both the political tensions leading to the declaration of "Mr. Madison's War," and the drama of the military and naval battles that followed. This is an important book and one that both scholars and readers interested in our national past should read." --Carol Berkin, Presidential Professor of History, Emerita, Baruch College & The Graduate Center, CUNY

Willard Sterne Randall is an American historian and author who specializes in biographies related to the American colonial period and the American Revolution, including . He teaches American history at Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont.
