Dr. Paula Uruburu Reviews “Revolution on the Hudson”

The New York Times

English Professor Paula Uruburu’s review of George C. Daughan’s “Revolution on the Hudson – New York City and the Hudson River Valley in the American War of Independence” for The New York Times credits the author’s exacting account of the personal and national cost of the rebellion on both sides. “[Daughan] is most effective when describing George III’s hubris, which resulted in dangerous assumptions about British naval superiority, and he succeeds in lending an authentic voice to those pasteboard figures we learned about in history class, like John Adams and Benedict Arnold.”
