Historian Richard Ketchum is the author of the classic studies Decisive Day: The Battle for Bunker Hill; The Winter Soldiers: The Battles for Trenton and Princeton; and Saratoga: Turning Point of America’s Revolutionary War. At the center of his narrative, he explores the stories of such leading New York families as the DeLanceys, who were loyalists, and the Livingstons, who favored American independence. Drawing on letters, journals, diaries, and contemporary newspapers, he chronicles the New York community, already divided by political, familial, economic, and religious rivalries, at the outbreak of the American Revolution.
