When we think of important years in the history of the American Revolution, we might think of years like 1765 and the Stamp Act Crisis, 1773 and the Tea Crisis, 1775 and the start of what would become the War for American Independence, or 1776, the year the United States declared independence.
In this episode of the Ben Franklin’s World podcast, award-winning historian Mary Beth Norton, the Mary Donlan Alger Professor Emerita at Cornell University and the author of 1774: The Long Year of Revolution (Knopf Publishing, 2020), joins us to discuss another year that she would like us to pay attention to as we think about the American Revolution: the year 1774.
