Revolutionary War (War of Independence)

Rutherfurd's New York devotes several chapters to the American struggle for Independence. The events and arguments leading up to the conflict begin with the chapter 'Montayne's Tavern' in 1758, and the commencement of hostilities in 'War', in 1776. The action takes place in London, New York (which became the British Headquarters), Valley Forge, West Point, Yorktown, and several other locations.

The award for shortest reign in history goes to…Louis-Antoine Duke of Angoulême of France ! Louis XIX ruled for approximately 20 minutes – the time between when his father Charles X of France signed abdication papers in 1830 and the moment he too wielded a quill, signing away his rights to the throne.
