Fellowship Talks

How Revising History Shaped the American Revolution

54 minutes

Program date: December 7 
Were the founders "revisionist historians?" Before the American Revolution, most British American colonists thought of British history as their own, but by 1800 that was no longer the case. Join us as Benjamin Carp hosts Michael D. Hattem, talk about how Americans' ideas about British history and their own colonial history changed during the revolutionary era, the creation of "American history" as part of the Revolution, and the important role of revising history in the founding of the republic.
