The Martyr and the Traitor: Two Stories From the American Revolution

This book aims to complicate the story of the American Revolution by depicting both a Patriot and a Loyalist sympathetically. Nathan Hale and Moses Dunbar will be presented not as hero and villain, but as two men whose consciences led them along divergent paths. The book will explore three main themes: political choice during the Revolution, the meaning of treason, and the question of historical memory.
