The Forgotten Story of the Gulf South During America's Revolutionary Era
At last, we have an easy-to-read book that corrects the long-embraced notion of thirteen American colonies rising revolution against Britain. Mike Bunn's impressively researched and well-written volume reveals that there were actually fourteen colonies and that one, though largely forgotten to history, remained loyal. Fourteenth Colony will open many eyes to a startling historical omission, just as it will force a reconsideration of how we teach and interpret the American Revolution.
