Alexander McDougall, Patriot and Statesman of the American Revolution, 1732-86

Biography of public career (1763-86) of Alexander McDougall, prominent New Revolutionary patriot, wartime general and post-war politican. ABSTRACT: Biography of public career (1763-86) of Alexander McDougall, prominent New Revolutionary patriot, wartime general and post-war politican. Affords opportunity to guage psychological as well as political reaction of a leading revolutionary to tasks and responsibilities of creating a new nation. What did patriots perceive as the goals of Independence: ideological freedom from Britain, opportunity to reform society, or some other purpose? Did change take place in N.Y. as result of Independence? What was patriot's role in new society or continuing the old? Did revolutionary leaders like McD. remain consistent in their pre-1776 values and expectations or were their attitudes transformed by new and different experiences and circumstance in achieving and defending Independence?
