Author Joseph J. Ellis presents his culminating work on the American Founding by rethinking the American Revolution as we have known it. He takes a fresh look at the events between 1773 and 1783, revealing a war more brutal than any in American history save the Civil War and discovering a strange breed of revolutionaries. The Cause brings together a cast of familiar and forgotten characters challenging the story we have long told ourselves about our origins as a people and a nation. Joining the author in conversation will be author and historian Richard Brookhiser.
