For the enhanced e-version of Reporting the Revolutionary War, I filmed interviews with several of the book’s historian contributors. My questions covered a lot of ground, including military strategy, print culture, politics, health, logistics, etc. We finished with 100+ video segments totaling more than five hours of Q&A. Frequently, our conversations went off on tangents about topics that didn’t quite match the book’s focus and thus didn’t make the e-edition. One of those tangents occurred with military historian John W. Hall, who many may recognize from his part in the History Channel’s Revolution mini-series (2006-07). In this video (embedded below), Hall explains the American Revolution’s profound impact on American military policy for the 150 years that followed the Treaty of Paris. Enjoy!
