The Revolution out west
In the wake of the British victory in the Seven Years’ War, Native Americans on the frontier took up arms against the British under the leadership of Ottawa warrior Pontiac. Eager to stop the bloodshed, the Empire sued for peace—but a group of frontiersmen known as the “Black Boys” were furious over what they saw as a British capitulation. Dressing as Native Americans, they began launching targeted assaults to destroy the peace offering. These struggles would determine whether “freedom” would be defined by the British, Native Americans, or colonial settlers.
Moving the action from the Eastern Seaboard to the treacherous frontier, Patrick Spero reveals the crucial role the West played in igniting the flame of American independence.
