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.
