Revolutionary War and Beyond

Everything you want to know about the Revolutionary War
and the founding of the United States

Revolutionary War and Beyond began as a hobby website for an amateur American history enthusiast. It has become one of the most popular and fastest growing websites devoted to American history and the Founding Fathers. We live in a day and age when many Americans are studying their roots... looking at where we came from to help us understand where we want to go as a nation.

Many people think our nation has gotten off track and veered away from what it once was. Some have said things such as, "It's not the way it used to be when I was younger." In an effort to understand how we have become what we are today and to get back to what we once were, many people are uncovering the old textbooks and manuscripts of the great founders of our nation... men like George Washington, James Madison, John Adams, Patrick Henry, George Mason, Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Adams, Thomas Jefferson and a long list of others.

We are looking to these men to find out what they believed, what they intended and what their vision for America was, because if you can understand the beginning of a thing, you can understand it's purpose and destiny. We trust that you will find the answers to these questions and learn more about America's purpose and destiny than you ever imagined... and in turn, your own purpose and destiny, since you are a part of America.

Many of our visitors are looking for quick facts about the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, George Washington or other Founding Fathers. But there is much more to Revolutionary War and Beyond than simple facts!

We invite you to join our American History Book Club where we read books about the Founders together. This is a project we are starting in April of 2012 and we invite you to read along with us and post your own comments about the books we read together.

We also invite you to subscribe to our monthly e-newsletter that is full of information about the founding period and the latest information on the site. It's called American Beginnings.

The day the shot was heard around the world.

Revive 1775 the Panorama!

A makeshift army of brave farmers takes on the British Empire and becomes the most famous Rebel Alliance of all time. In 1843, 91-year-old Capt. Levi Preston was asked by a young historian why he had fought in the American Revolution. Was it the Stamp Act, the Tea Act, perhaps the treatises of John Locke? “No, sirree,” the captain countered. He had not seen any stamps, sipped any tea, or read anything other than the Bible, the catechism, and Watts’s Psalms. “What we meant in going for those Redcoats was this: we always had been free, and we meant to be always free. They didn’t mean we should.” This is the Panoramic View of that day, April 19th, 1775.
