Matt’s Book Blog recently read and reviewed The Shoemaker and the Tea Party: Memory and the American Revolution by Alfred F. Young for the 2013 American Revolution Reading Challenge. Here’s an excerpt:
The book is divided into two parts, Hewes’ life and times and an examination of the role that personal and collective memory play in influencing of understanding of history. This book is an interesting and accessible read for general readers who want a deeper insight into how is history is used by conservatives and progressives for their own social and political purposes.
Here’s the full review.
