As If an Enemy's Country

The British Occupation of Boston and the Origins of Revolution

Richard Archer

Pivotal Moments in American History

  • Covers the dramatic few years when colonial Americans were galvanized to resist British rule, revealing that perhaps nothing did more to foment anti-British sentiment than the armed occupation of Boston
  • Provides a gripping narrative of those critical months between October 1, 1768 and the winter of 1770 when Boston was an occupied town
  • Tells the riveting story of what made the Boston townspeople, and with them other colonists, turn toward revolution
