Daily Life During the American Revolution, Paperback / softback Book

Daily Life During the American Revolution Paperback / softback

Part of the Daily Life series

Description

How did the patriot army dress themselves? What was the British soldier's food ration and what were women's roles during the revolution?

What types of weapons did the combatants use and how large were the naval vessels of the day?

This engaging and informative resource on the social and material history of the Revolutionary War period answers these and many other questions.

Covering more than just political ideologies and the outcomes of battles, Daily Life During the Revolutionary War looks at the real stuff of history-people's lives and how they lived them. Looking at the war and society from many angles, the book's 20 chapters cover such important topics as radicals, Tories, taxation, the French, the Hessians, prisoner-of-war conditions, fashion, leisure time activities, and war on the frontier, among others.

Also included are more than 35 photographs and illustrations, and over a dozen charts.

This behind-the-scenes look at history presents a fascinating picture of everyday life deeply affected by the spirit of '76.
