Ethan Allen : his life and times by Willard Sterne Randall( Book )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While Ethan Allen, a canonical hero of the American Revolution, has always been defined by his daring 1775 predawn attack on British-controlled Fort Ticonderoga, biographer Willard Sterne Randall challenges our conventional understanding of this largely unexamined Founding Father, documenting that much of what we "know" of Allen is mere folklore. Widening the scope of his inquiry beyond the Revolutionary War, Randall traces Allen back to his modest origins in Connecticut, where he was born in 1738. Largely self-educated, Allen demonstrated his rebellious nature early on through his attraction to Deism, his dramatic defense of smallpox vaccinations, and his early support of separation of church and state. Chronicling Allen's progress to commander of the largest American paramilitary force on the eve of the Revolution, Randall unlocks a trove of new source material, particularly evident in his portrait of Allen as a British prisoner-of-war, and reveals not only a public-spirited leader but a self-interested individual, often no less rapacious than his archenemies, the New York land barons.--From publisher description

Unshackling America : how the War of 1812 truly ended the American Revolution by Willard Sterne Randall( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unshackling America challenges the persistent fallacy that Americans fought two separate wars of independence. Williard Sterne Randall documents an unremitting fifty-year-long struggle for economic independence from Britain overlapping two armed conflicts linked by an unacknowledged global struggle. Throughout this perilous period, the struggle was all about free trade. Neither Jefferson nor any other Founding Father could divine that the Revolutionary Period of 1763 to 1783 had concluded only one part, the first phase of their ordeal. The Treaty of Paris of 1783 at the end of the Revolutionary War halted overt combat but had achieved only partial political autonomy from Britain. By not guaranteeing American economic independence and agency, Britain continued to deny American sovereignty. Randall details the fifty years and persistent attempts by the British to control American trade waters, but he also shows how, despite the outrageous restrictions, the United States asserted the doctrine of neutral rights and developed the world's second largest merchant fleet as it absorbed the French Caribbean trade. American ships carrying trade increased five-fold between 1790 and 1800, its tonnage nearly doubling again between 1800 and 1812, ultimately making the United States the world's largest independent maritime power"--Provided by publisher
