C-SPAN Q & A: Kevin Phillips | [Brian Lamb]

C-SPAN Q & A: Kevin Phillips

Our guest is historian and commentator Kevin Phillips to discuss his new historical narrative titled 1775: A Good Year for Revolution. Phillips suggests that the year 1775 was a critical launching point of both the Revolutionary War and American independence from Britain. He argues that the year 1776 has incorrectly emerged as a watershed year due to historical hype and confusion. He details American colonial successes in 1775 such as importing vital cannon and gunpowder, enlisting Indian tribes as allies, and launching a trade war with Britain through the Continental Association.
