Joseph John Ellis is a Professor of History at Mount Holyoke College who has written influential and award-winning histories on the Federalist period. His book Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation (2000) received the Pulitzer Prize for History in 2001. Professor Ellis followed up Founding Brothers with American Creation. Read together, these two books provide and in depth look at the American Revolution.

Chapters from Founding Brothers and American Creation in chronological order with links to other online resources by Joseph Ellis and friends.

Note: if you are preparing for your first APUSH test (usually given on the second day of school), review AC3, Inventing, and FB2 (for a good overview of the Colonial Period, read Hannah's Escape). Remember, nothing substitutes for actually reading the book.
