Proceedings of the Sixth Military History Symposium of the United States Air Force Academy, including the annual Harmon Memorial Lecture, "The American Revolution Today." In recent years historians have begun to ask new questions about the circumstances that surrounded the achievement of American independence, have begun to examine the everyday aspects of life and death in that era, have emphasized the study of society "from the bottom up" instead of "from the top down," and have sharpened their analytical skills through the use of new kinds of evidence and new kinds of tools such as computer-assisted statistical runs.
