Book Breaks with H.W. Brands and "Our First Civil War: Patriots and Loyalists in the American Revolution"
Gilder Lehrman Book Breaks features the most exciting history scholars in America discussing their books with host Gena Oppenheim live, followed by a Q&A with home audiences.

Join us online on Sunday, November 14 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. ET (11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. PT) with H.W. Brands, as he discusses his book "Our First Civil War: Patriots and Loyalists in the American Revolution".

What causes  a man to forsake his country and take arms against it? What prompts others, hardly distinguishable in station or success, to defend that country against the rebels? That is the question New York Times bestselling historian and two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist H. W. Brands answers in his next thrilling, narrative-driven American history.

"Our First Civil War" is a fresh and dramatic recasting of the American Revolution, not just as a war between the American colonists and the British redcoats, but also as a violent battle between neighbors, friends, and family members—forced to make the terrifying choice between staying loyal to the Crown or joining the rebellion—where those committing sedition were ultimately remembered as heroes and Founding Fathers.
