DISTANT THUNDER: THE PLIGHT OF THE LOYALIST IN THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION   

The saying that history is written by the victors is quite true of the American Revolution where what is called the “Patriot” perspective is universally assumed to be the “right” one. But every conflict between human beings contains contrary points of view, where well-meaning participants see things from completely different perspectives. It is estimated that a full one third of the American population identified themselves with the Loyalist perspective, yet they have been largely vilified in nearly every historical account. This class will use the historical fiction novel, Distant Thunder, by facilitator, Timothy Krueger, based on the actual experiences of an American clergyman from Portland, Maine who gradually found himself sympathizing with the Loyalist perspective, thus illustrating a unique and surprising aspect to this supposedly well-known era. A jarring resonance to our own time will be touched upon.
