Fighting over the Founders: How We Remember the American Revolution**
Presented by Andrew Schocket
The American Revolution serves as a source of powerful founding myths and remains the most accessible and most contsted event in US history. More than any other, it stands as a proxy for how Americans perceive the nation’s aspirations. Identifying competing interpretations of the Revolution, Schocket reveals how our views of the past and present illuminates our ideas of what the United States means to its citizens in the new millennium.
