America's Revolutionary War - A Historical Perspective. Introduction [Session 1 of 7]
Presented by Arthur Gottlieb
America’s War for Independence was victorious despite considerable odds favoring the Sea and Land forces of the British Empire which were, at that time, the most powerful on earth. The symbolism of this David vs. Goliath struggle and the impact of the Declaration of Independence endure among the pivotal events of world history. In this multi-part series on the Revolutionary War, Mr. Gottlieb will seek to provide historical and contextual understanding of why the War for Independence was fought and an examination of the philosophical and moral arguments of those impassioned enlightenment era thinkers and statesmen who betrayed their King and Country to fight for American independence.
