Author Andrew Jackson O'Shaughnessy challenges the stereotype that Britain should have won the Revolutionary War and that its failure to do so was due to the incompetence of commanders and politicians. He offers a very different explanation of why Britain lost the American War of Independence.

O'Shaughnessy is the Saunders Director of the Robert H. Smith International Center for Jefferson Studies at Monticello and Professor of History at the University of Virginia.

Lecture series sponsored by the Clements Library. The event is free, but please register by emailing clementsevents@umich.edu or calling 734-647-0864.
