Peter Oliver’s Origin and Progress of the American Rebellion: A Tory View



A bitter Loyalist, exiled from Boston near the beginning of the Revolutionary War, fills his account of the rebellion with bilious invective against the upstart “patriots” who ruined his family and friends. This is a short and entertaining read—recommended if you’re curious about the Tory point of view, not recommended if you can’t handle Arbitrary Archaic Capitalization and a bad attitude.
