On Nov. 21, 2019, T. H. Breen discussed his new book, The Will of the People: The Revolutionary Birth of America, showing how ordinary Americans, far from the halls of power and the fields of battle, turned a faltering rebellion into an enduring Revolution to create a country based on the will of the people. The Will of the People was recently featured as part of the Museum's Read the Revolution series, offering a curated collection of exciting and thought-provoking books about the American Revolution. You can buy The Will of the People online through the Museum Shop.
