Welcome to TheBattleforNewYork.com, a website for Barnet Schecter's provocative book The Battle for New York: The City at the Heart of the American Revolution.
"Barnet Schecter proposes a radical revision of the way we think
about the American Revolution. The first battle was at Lexington and the
last was at Yorktown, but Schecter argues forcefully that New York City
was the hub and that that is how George Washington and the
British high command thought of it. A provocative book."
