The points the author made, he made well, in a way that you could clearly understand what he was saying, that is for the majority of the time. He was very organized in writing and in research. There are about 150 pages dedicated to references and such. Though the author made a wide variety of his points clearly there were several points that were harder to figure out what he was saying. Pages thirty through forty five speaks of the problem General Thomas Gage had with Americans, in reality the thesis of the chapter is, Gage’s plans to govern the new world with the King on his side and the resistant self-governed American colonists were making it difficult because of their customs.

In his focus on primary sources, Philbrick knits together firsthand accounts from various Bostonian residents such as John Adams and John Andrews with events leading up to the war. For the most part, reading each journal and firsthand documentary is refreshing, but there are various points when Philbrick's reliance upon certain accounts prove to be unnecessary and exhaustive. He references to countless sources, and while most were significant, many appeared to have miniscule relevance to the main takeaway. For instances, Philbrick purposed John Andrew's narrative to aid readers in understanding the context of everything taking place in Boston during the 1700's, but most of the information referring to Andrew's personal accounts and the British's evacuation appears
