Scars of Independence

Presented by Holger Hoock*

Although the American Revolution is often portrayed as an orderly, restrained rebellion, with brave patriots defending their noble ideals against an oppressive empire, that may be far from the truth.

In his deep research of America’s founding, author Holger Hoock finds that the Revolution was not only a high-minded battle over principles, but also a profoundly violent civil war—one that shaped the nation, and the British Empire, in ways we have only begun to understand.
