Overview

This collection, consisting primarily of letters of John, Abigail, and Samuel Adams and James and Mercy Warren, focuses on the growing alienation between Great Britain and its mainland American colonies.

This inside view of the patriot faction includes information on the Townshend duties, the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, the battles of Lexington and Bunker Hill, as well as political, military, and commercial problems surrounding the Revolutionary period.
