Experience the defining moments of the war that gave birth to America

The American Revolution 100 brings to life the monumental moments, bloody battles, and influential leaders who gave birth to a great nation. In comprehensive fashion, decorated veteran and military expert Michael Lee Lanning ranks and analyzes the war's most significant events, showing how each affected the outcome.

Who influenced the revolution more—John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, or John Paul Jones?

Was the Battle of Yorktown more pivotal than the Battle of Trenton?
