    Even after war broke out in 1775, John Ferling argues, most Americans did not favour a split with Britain and a majority of the Continental Congress would not have voted for it. Focusing on the period from the Boston Tea Party in 1773 to the Declaration of Independence in July 1776, this book sets out to understand the major players on each side and trace how their decisions led to what seems, but only in hindsight, the inevitable result of independence.
