A totally updated and revised second edition of their historically insightful survey of Revolutionary New England.

In a totally updated and revised second edition of their historically insightful survey of Revolutionary New England, Patricia and Robert Foulke have scrupulously retraced their tracks to offer even more anecdotes, legends, and quotes on the countless battlefields and reenactments, historic homes and buildings, and living-history museums that help give this region its almost mythic appeal. Also brought up to date are recommendations for places to stay and eat and a calendar of events, from the reenactment of the Battle of the Old North Bridge in Concord, MA, to a Thanksgiving feast at Plimouth Plantation. There’s early American history in New England at virtually every turn, and the Foulkes are your guides to it all.
