Listing Detail Tabs

When the bells rang out in Philadelphia on July 4, 1776, the colonists who were huddled in their thirteen states along the Atlantic and the kings in London, Paris, and Madrid knew that the real prize lay in the vast, shadowed land stretching far beyond the Alleghenies. This obscured magnet had been pulling empires for more than two centuries; it was the “pull” born into the colonials. A full appreciation of those facts is vital to an understanding of the American Revolution, its reasons, its results. The importance of the West in 1776 has been underestimated or ignored by historians in their concentration upon the East Coast colonies. Now, at last, the Colonial history of the United States is put into perspective by the presentation of what the people and the powers in that fateful period did and did not know of the Shadow of the a Continent.
