The majority of the study of the American Revolution centers on the main theaters of the war, chiefly east of the Appalachian Mountains and on the high seas. Obviously. Yet, what is considered today the Midwest or Great Lakes region saw action that had an impact on the outcome of the war, American independence, British occupation, and Native American life.
Termed “the west” this area encompassed the future states of Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Missouri, Arkansas, and others along the Mississippi River and Great Lakes.
This area will be the focus of the next “Rev War Revelry” on Sunday, August 23 at 7 p.m. EST on our Facebook page. Join Emerging Revolutionary War historians, historian and Gabe Neville, of the 8th Virginia blog who will return for more discussion and revelry.
Joining us this evening will be another historian making his debut on “Rev War Revelry.” That newcomer is Joe Herron, Chief of Interpretation at George Rogers Clark National Historical Park in Vincennes, Indiana.
So, grab your favorite drink and join us for an evening talking the likes of George Rogers Clark, Daniel Boone, and the personas and campaigns of the American west during the American Revolution.

Ok kinda new at this for the podcast or discussion is there a link or on the Facebook ?
Just click on Emerging Revolutionary War’s Facebook page at 7 pm this Sunday and you will see what is referred to as Facebook Live, which will broadcast the discussion. You can follow along and also comment/ask questions in the chat box.
Thanks Phil one question I went on to Facebook and there isn’t much there was that a correct page? I guess I was expecting to see more to read.
Just want to thank you for a wonderful evening. The war in the West is a real point of interest for me . I was so impressed by the amount of knowledge your panelists were able to bring to the discussion. I’d be happy to listen to another session but – one hour is just not enough!!
Appreciate all your efforts in bringing these events to armchair Rev War historians. Very grateful!
