The American Revolutionary War, also known as the American War of
Independence, was a conflict which changed the course of history. What
started out as a regional conflict in a remote, British colony escalated to
a global conflict involving several European powers. It ended with defeat
of the British, financial ruin for France and the birth of a great nation.
This war was fought long before the invention of the camera and
photography. The only pictorial records were illustrations, etchings and
paintings, often done years after the actual event. As such, they do not
depict a true record of what happened but are a politically biased, and
often romanticized, view promoting one side's agenda.
This set of 140 black and white illustrations, together with a selection of
high resolution, color paintings, charts the history of the war. It starts
with the 'Boston Tea Party', takes in the various battles, and ends with
the 'Treaty of Paris'. There are also illustrations of some of the most
important people and a unique collection showing the British point of view.
