The brave Bostonians : Hutchinson, Quincy, Franklin, and the coming of the American Revolution by Philip James McFarland( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most Americans are familiar with the Revolution through its defining moments: the Stamp Act riots, the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere's ride, the first shots fired at Lexington and Concord. These were events fueled by the anger of an array of Bostonians in search of liberty and justice for an American cause. As a legacy of the Revolution, their heroic tales have intimately defined our consciousness as Americans and the sense of history we carry with us today. But there is another side to the story, a story of Bostonians equally brave and as intensely devoted to liberty and justice, who watched with horror as their homes were pillaged, their reputations destroyed, and their lives torn apart. They were the losers, far more deeply than Britain, King George, or a host of British redcoats. In The Brave Bostonians, novelist and historian Philip McFarland traces both sides through the intertwined lives of three native, and eminently respected, Bostonians during the turbulent year preceding the Revolution. Thomas Hutchinson, the last civilian governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, stands as the centerpiece of the story. Unfalteringly loyal to British law and order and far from home as an exile in London, he could only agonize over letters and newspaper headlines as his beloved Boston burst apart at the seams. Josiah Quincy, an archpatriot and feverish enemy of Hutchinson's loyalism, drove himself to his own tubercular death in pursuit of the colony's independence. And Benjamin Franklin, the venerable diplomat, scientist, and devoted Anglophile, fought with considerable skill to hold the British Empire together before conceding at last to declare himself heart and soul an American. These three men, each fiercely loyal in his own way to Boston and America, stood in separate corners of the conflict. And each found his own fate

John Hay, friend of giants : the man and life connecting Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain, Henry James, and Theodore Roosevelt by Philip James McFarland( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Now, perhaps, only those enmeshed in 19th-century American history know his name; but when John Hay died in 1905, he was one of the most famous men in the world. And one of the most highly regarded. Abraham Lincoln's private secretary during the Civil War, thereafter as a popular poet, novelist, newspaper editor, highly esteemed historian and biographer, diplomat, businessman, and secretary of state until his death, Hay enjoyed remarkable success in public and private life. In John Hay, Friend of Giants, Philip McFarland presents both the intimate story of Hay's relationship with four prominent figures of his age and an insightful history of the United States from the 1850s to the turn of the century. Hay's life and extraordinary friendships provide a window into the politics, literature, society, and diplomacy of this remarkable era of American expansion."--
