From Lexington To Yorktown – The American Revolution From Both Sides

Barry Greenlaw

At a period of time today when the Constitution and formation of our government is at the forefront of our discussions, it seems an appropriate occasion to consider the dramatic events that led directly to the formation of our country. As someone who grew up within a mile of the site of the beginning of the Revolution at Lexington (and annually celebrated the event wearing his well-worn tricorn hat), and then lived for seven years near the site of the conflict’s last significant battle at Yorktown, I have long been fascinated with this enthralling story – perhaps the seminal event in the history of the United States. Two years from next Spring, in April of 2025, the 250th anniversary celebrations of this formative event will begin.

In this 10-week course, we will examine the 6 years of conflict, focusing not only on the significant military operations themselves, but on the personalities, and surrounding political, social and even cultural events from both the rebellious American and British sides.
