Liberty is Sweet Cover
A sweeping reassessment of the American Revolution - its beginnings, the revolts that led up to the Declaration of Independence, the military battles, the peace treaty and the Constitution - Liberty is Sweet shows how the founding fathers were influenced by the freedom struggles of overlooked Americans, including artisans and farmers, enslaved Africans, the Native Nations, women and religious dissenters.
