Tales From A Revolution
Bacon's Rebellion and the Transformation of Early AmericaBook - 2012
The late seventeenth century was a pivotal moment in American history, full of upheavals and far-flung conspiracies. In the spring of 1676, Nathaniel Bacon, a hotheaded young newcomer to Virginia, led a revolt against the colony's Indian policies. Bacon's Rebellion turned into a civil war within Virginia--and a war of extermination against the colony's Indian allies--that lasted into the following winter, sending shock waves throughout the British colonies and into England itself. Historian James Rice captures the swirling rumors and central events of Bacon's Rebellion and its aftermath, weaving them into a dramatic tale that is part of the founding story of America.--From publisher description.
