American Uprising by Daniel Rasmussen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
American Uprising changed the way I look at the world. The measure of a book to me is
The book's problem is that it lacks the usual historical method of verifying of its conclusions about how the Uprising occurred. The nitty gritty of the uprising is not what is important about this book. The real value of the book is its illumination of slavery in the new American territory. This may not have been what Rasmussen set out to do, but it is what he accomplished brilliantly.
