Undergraduates and graduate students in early American history take note! Michael Hattem, a graduate student at Yale and prolific blogger at The Junto, has written a very useful overview of the way historians have understood the American Revolution from 1780 to the present.
See if you can define these different schools of interpretation:
New Left (1960-1980)
Social History (1960-1980)
Founders Chic (1980-Present)
