Colonists in early America believed that the mixed constitution of kings, lords, and commoners provided the most stable and freest government possible, finding confirmation in the success of the British Empire. When Parliament sought to impose new taxes on the colonies, however, this conviction began to erode. Pulitzer Prize winner Alan Taylor presents a colorful talk on the American Revolution, our first Civil War.
