New York: New York University Press. Chapter Two War of American Independence, 1775–83 Stephen R. Conway How one views the War of American Independence depends, to a considerable extent, on from where one looks. To American historians, this is the conflict that saw the birth and survival of their country; to British historians the war severed not just a transatlantic empire but the transatlantic British nation. Even the name commonly attached to the struggle differs on the two sides of the ocean: to the British it is the War of American Independence, or even just the American War; to Americans, the conflict is usually known as the Revolutionary War.

Among the early authors, there was a particularly strong bias toward the “righteousness” of Protestant Anglo-American actions and the “savage” character of Indian and French-Roman Catholic actors. Moreover, their view of military history focused almost exclusively on the Northeast, and New England in particular. Francis Parkman stood as the most influential of the antiquarians. His A Half Century of Conflict (1892) covered the period before the Seven Years’ War (1754– 63), his two-volume Montcalm and Wolfe (1884) specifically addressed the last of the imperial wars – the “French and Indian War” – as a contest between “good” (Anglo-American civilization) and “bad” (French and Indian worldviews), and his warfare during the colonial era 11 The Conspiracy of Pontiac (1851) spoke to Pontiac’s War (1763).
