Standard reference books date the American Revolution from roughly 1765 to 1783 and the Treaty of Paris. In his revisionary history, Randall, the biographer of six of the Founding Fathers and a Distinguished Scholar in History and Professor Emeritus at Champlain College, argues that the years from 1765 to 1783 were merely an incomplete Revolutionary Period. While they encompassed the end of the armed conflict between Britain and its former colonies, they did not guarantee the new nation’s sovereignty. Free trade was still at issue, and while the British tried to control American trade waters, the Americans fought back by asserting the doctrine of neutral rights and by steadily developing the world’s second largest merchant fleet.
