Summary
Concise account of the events leading up to the passage of the first of the Coercive Acts in 1774, and the immediate causes of the outbreak of the Revolutionary War. Takes issue with the view that the colonies were torn by factionalism, and argues that a remarkable and genuine unity existed among the American colonists, and that the Coercive Acts provided the basis for it. Focuses on the first Continental Congress, the first step in building the revolutionary movement, its debates and decisions, and presents evidence of colonial unity in the account of the Committees of Correspondence
