You may also be interested in the Prince William Library's author talk by Andrew Jackson O’Shaughnessy, author of award-winning The Men Who Lost America: British Leadership, the American Revolution and the Fate of the Empire. Program will be on October 28, 7:00-8:00pm at Bull Run Regional Library (8051 Ashton Avenue Manassas, VA 20109-2892).

One book reviewer in his praise noted America’s leaders--especially George Washington--faced an array of talented, dedicated, and resourceful leaders who would lose America, but set the stage for British imperial dominance in the nineteenth century. A refreshing, exhaustively researched study which should reinvigorate the historical literature on the collapse of the British Empire in North America. (see more...)
