      Turning point of the American Revolution. It was very important because it convinced the French to give the U.S. military support. It lifted American spirits, ended the British threat in New England by taking control of the Hudson River, and, most importantly, showed the French that the Americans had the potential to beat their enemy, Great Britain. America, (), and Michael Parson's Those Damned Rebels: Britain's American Empire in Revolt (). English authors are inclined to write from the of view of what England knew about the American colonies at the time. Otherwise, Dr. Russell said little on British writers.

        In British-overtaken New York, the Colonists had an undercover spy network which consisted of spies who were either pretending to be part of the British army, or who were rebels stuck in the city keeping very close tabs on British officers. They passed messages to each other (and in the end, to George Washington) using invisible ink.   A second great issue that confronted Burke in was the quarrel with the American colonies. Britain’s imposition of the Stamp Act there in , along with other measures, provoked unrest and opposition, which soon swelled into disobedience, conflict, and secession. British policy was vacillating; determination to maintain imperial control.

        Also useful to this subject is a new book titled Brothers at Arms: American Independence and the Men of France and Spain Who Saved It by Larrie D. Ferreiro. The author contextualizes the American Revolution as just part of a much larger struggle among the great powers United Kingdom, France, and Spain. The war is at the very heart of American’s conception of themselves: the idea of a struggle for liberty against an evil empire is the country’s creation myth. But it is the great paradox of the American Revolution that the ones who revolted against British rule were the best-off of all Britain’s colonial subjects.
