On the foggy morning of August 16, 1780, American and British armies clashed in the pine woods north of Camden, South Carolina, in one of the most important and influential battles of the Revolutionary War. An American victory would quash British plans to subjugate the Southern colonies and virtually guarantee the independence of the fledgling United States. A victory for the British would pave the way for the conquest of North Carolina and Virginia. After nearly an hour of frenzied, bloody combat, the British army emerged victorious, and American morale plummeted to its lowest point of the war. The rout at Camden was not a total loss, however, as Patriot forces eventually came away with a renewed determination to resist British advances, and the lessons from the defeat were applied to secure future victories that finally allowed the Patriots to triumph in the South. This engaging new book presents the Battle of Camden as never before: through the eyes and words of American and British participants and contemporary observers. The events leading up to the conflict, the combat itself and the consequences of Camden are all described in striking detail. The cunning strategies of both American Major General Horatio Gates and British Lieutenant General Lord Cornwallis are revealed, as are a number of battlefield reports from soldiers on both sides. In addition to these compelling firsthand accounts, The Battle of Camden includes analysis of the battle and its effects in America and Europe from George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Lord George Germain. With this landmark text, author and historian Jim Piecuch offers a comprehensive consideration of a vital Revolutionary battle and its effects on the war for American independence.

In which John Green teaches you where American politicians come from. In the beginning, soon after the US constitution was adopted, politics were pretty non-existent. George Washington was elected president with no opposition, everything was new and exciting, and everyone just got along. For several months. Then the contentious debate about the nature of the United States began, and it continues to this day. Washington and his lackey/handler Alexander Hamilton pursued an elitist program of federalism. They attempted to strengthen the central government, create a strong nation-state, and leave less of the governance to the states, They wanted to create debt, encourage manufacturing, and really modernize the new nation/ The opposition, creatively known as the anti-federalists, wanted to build some kind of agrarian pseudo-paradise where every (white) man could have his own farm, and live a free, self-reliant life. The founding father who epitomized this view was Thomas Jefferson. By the time Adams became president, the anti-federalists had gotten the memo about how alienating a name like anti-federalist can be. It's so much more appealing to voters if your party is for something rather than being defined by what you're against, you know? In any case, Jefferson and his acolytes changed their name to the Democratic-Republican Party, which covered a lot of bases, and proceeded to protest nearly everything Adams did. Lest you think this week is all boring politics,you'll be thrilled to hear this episode has a Whiskey Rebellion, a Quasi-War, anti-French sentiment, some controversial treaties, and something called the XYZ Affair, which sounds very exciting. Learn all about it this week with John Green.

Much of America's politics came from debates between democratic republican Thomas Jefferson and federalist Alexander Hamilton: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/alexander-hamilton While Jefferson would go on to become president, Hamilton heavily influenced President George Washington who set many American political ideals in his farewell address that Hamilton helped craft: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/washington-s-farewell-address Follow us! http://www.twitter.com/thecrashcourse http://www.twitter.com/realjohngreen http://www.twitter.com/crashcoursestan http://www.twitter.com/raoulmeyer http://www.twitter.com/saysdanica http://www.twitter.com/thoughtbubbler Turn on the captions.

In August 1776, American General George Washington would face off against British Commander-in-Chief William Howe. Fresh off his victory in Boston, Washington hoped to achieve a quick victory and bring the war to a speedy end. However, General Howe had other plans. Howe and his 30,000 troops landed in Long Island and began their march towards Washington's position on Manhattan. The battle that followed was fierce. Washington and his troops came mere hours away from complete annihilation but thanks to a brilliant and speedy escape, the American army was saved and the Revolution was able to live on.

U.S. nuclear war plans called for the destruction of the Soviet Union and China as “viable societies,” according to documents revealed by the National Security Archive . The newly declassified documents show that plans for a nuclear war devised by the US Army in the 1960s considered decimating the Soviet Union and China by destroying their industrial potential and wiping out the bulk of their populations. RT reports: A review of the US general nuclear war plan by the Joint Staff in 1964, which was recently published by George Washington University’s National Security Archive project, shows how the Pentagon studied options “to destroy the USSR and China as viable societies.” The review, conducted two years after the Cuban Missile Crisis, devises the destruction of the Soviet Union “as a viable society” by annihilating 70 percent of its industrial floor space during pre-emptive and retaliatory nuclear strikes. A similar goal is tweaked for China, given its more agrarian-based economy at the time. According to the plan, the US would wipe out 30 major Chinese cities, killing off 30 percent of the nation’s urban population and halving its industrial capabilities. The successful execution of the large-scale nuclear assault would ensure that China “would no longer be a viable nation,” the review reads. The Joint Staff had proposed to use the “population loss as the primary yardstick for effectiveness in destroying the enemy society with only collateral attention to industrial damage.” This “alarming” idea meant that, as long as urban workers and managers were killed, the actual damage to industrial targets “might not be as important,” the George Washington University researchers said. The 1964 plan doesn’t specify the anticipated enemy casualty levels, but – as the researchers note – an earlier estimate from 1961 projected that a US attack would kill 71 percent of the residents in major Soviet urban centers and 53 percent of residents in Chinese ones. Likewise, the 1962 estimate predicted the death of 70 million Soviet citizens during a “no-warning US strike” on military and urban-industrial targets. The Pentagon continues to rely heavily on nuclear deterrence, and – just like in the 1960s – the US nuclear strategy still regards Russian and Chinese military capabilities as main “challenges” faced by Washington. The latest Nuclear Posture Review, adopted in February, outlined “an unprecedented range and mix of threats” emanating from Beijing and Moscow. The document, which mentions Russia 127 times, cites the modernization of the Russian nuclear arsenal as “troubling” for the US. The existing nuclear strategy also allows the US to conduct nuclear strikes not only in response to enemies’ nuclear attacks, but also in response to “significant non-nuclear strategic attacks” on the US, its allies and partners. The newest US Nuclear Posture Review was heavily criticized by Russia and China. Moscow denounced the strategy as “confrontational,” while Beijing described the Pentagon’s approach as an example of “Cold-War mentality.” ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ◆ Latest news videos: http://bit.ly/2Kn8KeN ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ★ CONNECT WITH US ★ ◆ Google+: http://bit.ly/2LPVNjq ◆ Email: firstname.lastname@example.org ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Videos can use content-based copyright law contains reasonable use Fair Use (https://www.youtube.com/yt/copyright/)

Although generally associated with dams, canals and flood protection in the United States, USACE is involved in a wide range of public works support to the nation and the Department of Defense throughout the world. The Corps of Engineers provides outdoor recreation opportunities to the public, and provides 24% of U.S. hydropower capacity. The Corps' mission is to provide vital public engineering services in peace and war to strengthen the nation's security, energize the economy, and reduce risks from disasters. Their most visible missions include: - Planning, designing, building, and operating locks and dams. Other civil engineering projects include flood control, beach nourishment, and dredging for waterway navigation. - Design and construction of flood protection systems through various federal mandates (see Public Laws below). - Design and construction management of military facilities for the Army, Air Force, Army Reserve and Air Force Reserve and other Defense and Federal agencies. - Environmental regulation and ecosystem restoration. The Corps' vision is having a great engineering force of highly disciplined people working with partners through disciplined thought and action to deliver innovative and sustainable solutions to the nation's engineering challenges... The history of United States Army Corps of Engineers can be traced back to 16 June 1775, when the Continental Congress organized an army with a chief engineer and two assistants. Colonel Richard Gridley became General George Washington's first chief engineer; however, it was not until 1779 that Congress created a separate Corps of Engineers. One of its first tasks was to build fortifications near Boston at Bunker Hill. The first Corps was mostly composed of French subjects, who had been hired by General Washington from the service of Louis XVI. The Corps of Engineers as it is known today came into being on 16 March 1802, when President Thomas Jefferson was authorized to "organize and establish a Corps of Engineers ... that the said Corps ... shall be stationed at West Point in the State of New York and shall constitute a Military Academy." Until 1866, the superintendent of the United States Military Academy was always an engineer officer. During the first half of the 19th century, West Point was the major and, for a while, the only engineering school in the country. The Corps's authority over river works in the United States began with its fortification of New Orleans after the War of 1812... The Army Corps of Engineers played an instrumental role in the American Civil War. Many of the men who would serve in the top leadership in this institution were West Point graduates, who rose to military fame and power during the Civil War. Some of these men were Union Generals George McClellan, Henry Halleck, George Meade, and Confederate generals Robert E. Lee, Joseph Johnston, and P.G.T. Beauregard... In 1944, specially-trained army combat engineers were assigned to blow up underwater obstacles and clear defended ports during the invasion of Normandy. During World War II, the Army Corps of Engineers in the European Theater of Operations was responsible for building countless bridges and building or maintaining roads vital to the Allied advance across Europe into the heart of Germany. In the Pacific theater, the Pioneer troops were formed, a hand-selected unit of volunteer Army combat engineers trained in jungle warfare, knife fighting, and unarmed jujitsu (hand-to-hand combat) techniques. Working in camouflage, the Pioneers cleared jungle and prepared routes of advance and established bridgeheads for the infantry as well as demolishing enemy installations...

This PowerPoint, with activities, and lesson plans are available @: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-And-Social-Studies-Academy This lesson teaches students about the French and Indian War, with a focus on causes and consequences. Students will review how European competition for colonies, fueled by the economic theory of mercantilism, set the stage for a showdown between France and Great Britain over North America. Comparisons are provided of how the differing missions of these two nations in the way they settled North America demonstrate Native Americans likely willingness to help the French succeed: French fur trappers with a small population and trading alliances with the Natives - English settlement of the 13 Colonies with a hunger for land for agricultural use. Students will learn about the involvement of the following major players in the conflict: George Washington, General Wolfe, and William Pitt. The following events and content are also covered: Fort Duquesne, Fort Necessity, Albany Congress & Plan of Union, Siege of Louisburg, capture of Quebec, the Treaty of Paris, Pontiac’s War, and the Proclamation Act of 1763. The consequences of the conflict are a focus of this lesson. Students will learn about how losing the French as an ally led to Pontiac’s War / Rebellion. How the Albany Congress would set the tone for colonial cooperation in rising revolutionary calls against the British. And most importantly how the taxes placed on the colonies as a result of England’s debt would lead to the “Road to the American Revolution.” Like most of the videos on Mr. Raymond’s Civics and Social Studies Academy’s lessons, this video ends with a review “quiz.” Remember that the PowerPoint in this video as well as a variety of lesson plans, worksheets, smartboard files and activities, are available at Teachers Pay Teachers. As a social studies teacher, I have often looked for good YouTube video clips to show my students. I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens.

The Bostonians repeated it, however, several months later on March 7, 1774 The two events together cost the British $3 million (today's equivalent) Benjamin Franklin actually wrote the first Declaration of Independence. Eventually, however, Thomas Jefferson was chosen to write the final draft John Adams successfully defended the British soldiers responsible for the Boston Massacre because he believed in the "right to counsel" and "protection of innocence" The first submarine attack in history took place in New York Harbor in 1776. The colonists attempted to attach gunpowder to the hull of the British ship HMS Eagle using a submersible they called The Turtle. At first George Washington was hesitant about enlisting black men into the continental army but when he heard they fought well at Bunker Hill he changed his mind.

The all black First Rhode Island Regiment consisted of 33 freedmen and 92 slaves who were guaranteed their freedom if they stuck out the war Unfortunately they were all wiped out in a British attack before the war ended By 1779, however, 1 in 7 soldiers in the continental army were black The continental army also had numerous women serving as cooks, nurses, and a few who even saw combat The most famous was Mary Ludwig Hays aka "Molly Pitcher" who replaced her injured husband at his cannon during the battle of Monmouth George Washington was one of the greatest spies/spymasters in American history. Although he is now known for his legendary honesty, he was in fact a genius at deception and would constantly leak "information" to the British that made his army seem much stronger than it was By 1779 there were more Americans fighting in the British Army than in the Continental Army Washington's army consisted of only 3,468 men in its entirety while nearly 8,000 Americans alone were in the British army In fact, nearly 1/3 of Americans opposed the Revolution At Yorktown, the battle that won the war, the French outnumbered Americans almost 3 to 1 (they were both fighting the British) Washington only had 11,000 men while the French had almost 30,000 along with nearly 40 ships Because King George III had vowed to continue fighting even after Yorktown, he ended up writing a letter of abdication when parliament objected to his plan He then withdrew his letter and consoled himself with the hope that Washington would become a dictator and the colonists would once again desire British rule George Washington, however, surprised everybody (including King George III) when he stepped down in 1783 with these words to Congress – "Having now finished the work assigned to me…I retire from the great theatre of action" When King George heard about it he even gasped, "If he does that, sir, he will be the greatest man in the world."

Washington's Spies The Story of America's First Spy Ring Based on remarkable new research, acclaimed historian Alexander Rose brings to life the true story of the spy ring that helped America win the Revolutionary War. For the first time, Rose takes us beyond the battlefront and deep into the shadowy underworld of double agents and triple crosses, covert operations and code breaking, and unmasks the courageous, flawed men who inhabited this wilderness of mirrors—including the spymaster at the heart of it all. In the summer of 1778, with the war poised to turn in his favor, General George Washington desperately needed to know where the British would strike next. To that end, he unleashed his secret weapon: an unlikely ring of spies in New York charged with discovering the enemy’s battle plans and military strategy. Washington’s small band included a young Quaker torn between political principle and family loyalty, a swashbuckling sailor addicted to the perils of espionage, a hard-drinking barkeep, a Yale-educated cavalryman and friend of the doomed Nathan Hale, and a peaceful, sickly farmer who begged Washington to let him retire but who always came through in the end. Personally guiding these imperfect everyday heroes was Washington himself. In an era when officers were gentlemen, and gentlemen didn’t spy, he possessed an extraordinary talent for deception—and proved an adept spymaster. The men he mentored were dubbed the Culper Ring. The British secret service tried to hunt them down, but they escaped by the closest of shaves thanks to their ciphers, dead drops, and invisible ink. Rose’s thrilling narrative tells the unknown story of the Revolution–the murderous intelligence war, gunrunning and kidnapping, defectors and executioners—that has never appeared in the history books. But Washington's Spies is also a spirited, touching account of friendship and trust, fear and betrayal, amid the dark and silent world of the spy.

http://www.lionheart-filmworks.com June 28, 1778 -- The Battle of Monmouth Courthouse was the last major engagement of the northern theater of the American War of Independence, and the largest one-day battle of the war pitting General George Washington's Valley Forge trained Army in pitched open battle against the rear of British General Sir Henry Clinton as his Army left Monmouth Court House. The legend of "Molly Pitcher" is usually associated with this Battle -- as well as the oppressive heat which affected and impaired soldiers on both sides. Produced by multi-award-winning filmmaker Kevin R. Hershberger, this documentary film includes highly authentic recreations of the important events of this critical battle -- using a "cast of thousands" of re-enactors from around the world. As well, professional narration and maps demonstrate the important facets of the battle and campaign. The official 230th anniversary re-enactment commemorative film.

In late September of 1777, after victorious encounters with American troops at Brandywine and Paoli, British soldiers occupied Philadelphia, then the capital of the Revolutionary government. The occupying army quartered several thousand troops in the nearby village of Germantown, about 6 miles northwest of the city. In early October, from his headquarters in Skippack (Montgomery County), General George Washington plotted to recapture the capital as quickly as possible. His elaborate battle plan called for an assault on Philadelphia from the northwest, aimed through the heart of Germantown. Overnight and through the early morning hours of October 4, as many as twelve thousand men moved south towards Germantown by several different routes, hoping to catch the British by surprise.Advancing Americans on the Germantown Road encountered a British picket outpost near, what is now, Allens Lane in Mount Airy. The resulting burst of artillery fire from nearby alarm cannons alerted British Colonel Thomas Musgrave’s 40th Regiment, which had camped in the fields around Cliveden. After several hours of intense fighting in and around Cliveden the Americans retreated back into Montgomery County, and eventually to a long winter at Valley Forge. They left behind more than 152 dead soldiers in Germantown, 70 of them on the grounds of Cliveden. British casualties were less severe, but a visitor after the battle described the interior of Cliveden as looking “like a slaughterhouse.”

http://democracynow.org - President Obama has launched an effort to rally Congress and the public behind a sustained offensive against the militant group, Islamic State. Obama is set to meet with Congress on Tuesday followed by a national address Wednesday. The United States says it will lead the offensive against the Islamic State with a so-called "core coalition" of 10 countries. The White House says the fight could last beyond the end of President Obama's term in early 2017. Meanwhile on Sunday, Arab League foreign ministers met in Cairo and announced they would cooperate with efforts to combat militants who have overrun parts of Iraq and Syria. Their resolution did not explicitly support the U.S. campaign against the Islamic State, but suggested it would back the effort. We are joined by Rami Khouri, director of the Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs at the American University of Beirut and editor-at-large of the Beirut-based newspaper, The Daily Star. "Combining American militarism with Arab dictatorships is probably the stupidest recipe that anybody could possibly come up with to try to fight jihadi movements like al-Qaeda and the Islamic State and others," Khouri says. "It was that combination of Arab autocracy and American militarism that actually nurtured and let these movements expand."

A political commentator says the US Navy has decided to refurbish its nuclear-powered aircraft carrier although it is not “technically at war against any formidable adversary at any rate.” The Navy has awarded a $50 million contract to prepare the USS George Washington for nuclear defueling despite looming defense budget cuts. “Plans by the US Navy to refurbish and re-launch the USS George Washington have to be seen in two contexts,” Rick Rozoff of the Stop NATO International Network told Press TV in a phone interview on Tuesday. “One there is an economic component to this,” he said. “This is a potential Boondoggle for the military-industrial complex which makes money off this.” “And second of all it’s an indication that far from retreating the US will continue to expand its aggressive military deployments abroad,” Rozoff continued. He added that US aircraft carriers have been rotating “regularly in very sensitive and also strategically important parts of the world – the Mediterranean Sea, the Arabian Sea and of course increasingly in far east Asia right now, where the US has signaled its Asia-Pacific pivot where in 60 percent of US naval forces are now to be deployed to the Asia-Pacific region.” “We are seeing an increased brinksmanship and aggressivity on the behalf of the United States internationally and military directly or through proxies and that a vital component of that is the fleet of US aircraft carriers which the USS George Washington evidently is going to be maintained and re-launched,” Rozoff said. The aircraft carrier in question, Rozoff said, is one of 14 US aircraft carriers that are all nuclear-powered and they are all what are called super carriers. “In theory the US has the ability to deploy somewhere in the neighborhood of a dozen or more aircraft carriers simultaneously,” he said. “So we have to get some idea of the unprecedented size, scope and intensity of US naval and general military operations globally.”

In this video, we rundown George Washington's crossing of the Delaware during the American Revolution and the Battle of Trenton. This Christmas, with America at its most divided, it’s time to remember that our country is a Christmas miracle itself. We tell the story of George Washington’s Christmas night crossing of the Delaware to attack a the Hessians.

Laughing Historically is an educational web show that’s teacher/classroom friendly and great for kids of all ages! --- TRANSCRIPT: Jesus wasn’t the only Christmas miracle. There’s also The United States of America. On Christmas, 1776, George Washington found himself in a situation not unlike going to Target to shop for presents on December 23rd. George had little choice, but had to do something, anything, fast. England sent 30,000 troops to the colonies. Although Washington started with just as many, after constant defeat in New York and retreat across New Jersey, he found himself in Pennsylvania with 2,500 volunteer men - most of whom were contracted to leave on New Years Eve. The British in pursuit were feeling pretty good and bed-up. Why fight in Winter? Especially when New Jerseyians were given them enough trouble attacking their foraging parties that they had to spread their garrisons across the state. Washington saw this as an opportunity. He would make one final push back into New Jersey, focused completely on the 1,500 Hessians troops stationed in Trenton. The Hessians, hired German soldiers, would be celebrating Christmas - as Germans are REALLY good at. But make no mistake, these were PROFESSIONAL soldiers trained by the famous Frederick the Great and probably the best fighters the British had. To explain just how crazy this plan was, lets bring up the most famous painting in American history, “Washington Crossing the Delaware”, created by a German American IMMIGRANT Emanuel Gottlieb Leutze in 1851, when germany was in revolution, and the rest of the world was in turmoil. It was at this point that Washington and all he did was gaining real international legend. But that painting, oh man, it… has some problems. The winter of 1776 was hellish, but there was some thaw a few days before, which made the crossing possible. But, on Christmas, a massive Nor’easter entered the area. That night it was snowing, hailing, and sleeting. And yes, Washington decided to use the cover of night to cross. So lets fix that. It is also worth noting that when they enlisted, these men were given one uniform, two pairs of socks, and shoes. By this time… no one had shoes. Some people say there were bloody footprints going to Trenton. But, they probably all had other things on their mind, because in the 18th century, few people could swim, to the dismay of avid swimmer Ben Franklin. The real boats were large flat-bottomed durham boats, which while they did allow for standing, couldn’t exactly fit horses and canons. Those came over in ferries. The Americans were supposed to attack at 8 AM, but did not attack until 10:30 AM. Finally, the American flag, that wouldn’t be designed until a year later. So, unless there was some time travel involved… But what actually occurred was just as incredible. Washington would surprise the Hessians, take Trenton, and push forward to take Princeton a year later. There is no doubt that this single surprise Christmas surprise ultimately won Washington the Revolution and freedom. Historians say a messenger arrived at Colonel Ralls, the Hessian commanders door, carrying intelligence saying the Continentals have landed. However, the note never reached Rall since he was busy enjoying his festivities. This one act in history could have completely wiped out the United States. And well folks, as for the rest of the story… he went down in historrrrrrryyyyy. Like George Washington! You wrote this whole thing to get to that ONE joke didn’t you?!?! UNBELIEVABLE.

There were several pivotal moments during the War for Independence, including George Washington's invasion of New Jersey in 1776, Gen. John Burgoyne's defeat at Saratoga in 1777, and Washington's victory at Yorktown in 1781. Washington pulled off a daring and successful invasion of New Jersey by winning at Trenton on December 25, 1776. This lifted the spirits of his army.

The Battle of the Brandywine was a critical military encounter of the American Revolution. Lands within and leading to this battle, spanning both Chester and Delaware Counties, are considered a resource of national significance by Landscapes2. To plan for the historic resources within the battlefield, it is important to understand how the battle was staged. A video entitled "The Battle of Brandywine" was produced by the ABPP Grant Project Director, Sean Moir, to further the public outreach efforts about the findings of the study and the history of the battle. The video features the order of battle, military artwork by Bryant White and Pamela Patrick White, and terrain and cultural resource analysis which brings the animated map and the project to life.

Braddock’s Defeat: The Battle of the Monongahela and the Road to Revolution by Dr. David Preston As British troops trudged away from their bloody defeat on the banks of the Monongahela River just miles from capturing their objective, Fort Duquesne, General Edward Braddock laid mortally wounded. In the first major battle of the French and Indian War, the commander of British forces led a combined force of British redcoats and American militia under the command of Colonel George Washington. The army was stopped short of victory, leading the British American colonies into a global conflict, ultimately changing the face of European empires. On Saturday, August 11, 2018, at 2:00 PM, the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle, Pennsylvania will host Dr. David L. Preston to present a lecture based on his award-winning book, Braddock’s Defeat: The Battle of the Monongahela and the Road to Revolution. Dr. Preston will be accompanied by two experts on the French and Indian War in an extended roundtable event. In 1755, the British high command sent General Edward Braddock to the American colonies with the mission of stopping French advances into British territory. Braddock combined his troops with local American militia under the command of Colonel George Washington and other officers who would one day become lynch pins on both sides of the American Revolution. Preston will discuss the strategic and operational overview of Braddock’s campaign to take Fort Duquesne, as well as introduce the major military players on both sides of the resulting battle. The discussion will finish with a post-battle analysis, tying Braddock’s campaign planning and coalition building to concepts which still apply to our military planning today. Lecture Date: August 11, 2018

In which John Green teaches you about the United States Constitution. During and after the American Revolutionary War, the government of the new country operated under the Articles of Confederation. While these Articles got the young nation through its war with England, they weren't of much use when it came to running a country. So, the founding fathers decided try their hand at nation-building, and they created the Constitution of the United States, which you may remember as the one that says We The People at the top. John will tell you how the convention came together, some of the compromises that had to be made to pass this thing, and why it's very lucky that the framers installed a somewhat reasonable process for making changes to the thing. You'll learn about Shays' Rebellion, the Federalist Papers, the elite vs rabble dynamic of the houses of congress, and start to find out just what an anti-federalist is.

PDF attachment: http://download.audible.com/product_related_docs/BK_ADBL_014453.pdf Washington's Spies The Story of America's First Spy Ring Based on remarkable new research, acclaimed historian Alexander Rose brings to life the true story of the spy ring that helped America win the Revolutionary War. For the first time, Rose takes us beyond the battlefront and deep into the shadowy underworld of double agents and triple crosses, covert operations and code breaking, and unmasks the courageous, flawed men who inhabited this wilderness of mirrors—including the spymaster at the heart of it all. In the summer of 1778, with the war poised to turn in his favor, General George Washington desperately needed to know where the British would strike next. To that end, he unleashed his secret weapon: an unlikely ring of spies in New York charged with discovering the enemy’s battle plans and military strategy. Washington’s small band included a young Quaker torn between political principle and family loyalty, a swashbuckling sailor addicted to the perils of espionage, a hard-drinking barkeep, a Yale-educated cavalryman and friend of the doomed Nathan Hale, and a peaceful, sickly farmer who begged Washington to let him retire but who always came through in the end. Personally guiding these imperfect everyday heroes was Washington himself. In an era when officers were gentlemen, and gentlemen didn’t spy, he possessed an extraordinary talent for deception—and proved an adept spymaster. The men he mentored were dubbed the Culper Ring. The British secret service tried to hunt them down, but they escaped by the closest of shaves thanks to their ciphers, dead drops, and invisible ink. Rose’s thrilling narrative tells the unknown story of the Revolution–the murderous intelligence war, gunrunning and kidnapping, defectors and executioners—that has never appeared in the history books. But Washington's Spies is also a spirited, touching account of friendship and trust, fear and betrayal, amid the dark and silent world of the spy.
