The untold story of the fight for the Hudson River Valley―the control of which, both sides firmly believed, would determine the outcome of the Revolutionary War.

Revolution on the Hudson unpacks intricate military maneuvers and investigates the domestic politics and militias of the Hudson River counties. In doing so it answers the greatest question about the war: how a fledgling nation could have defeated the most powerful war machine of the era.
