Bonus episode! In late July and early August I visited the United Kingdom with my family. I thought I would share my thoughts about some of the attractions that we were drawn to. I am a firm believer that to understand history, we have to experience the places the events took place in. Great Britain certainly provides plenty of institutions and places that are compelling and meaningful. Take a listen! If this is something you would like to hear more of, drop me a line at americawarpodcast@gmail.com. Take care and thanks for listening!

The fall of Charleston, South Carolina emboldened the British. Recruiting Loyalists and insisting on loyalty oaths, divided the colony and triggered a bitter internal conflict, if you will, a Civil War. In spite of the relative success of partisan leaders such as Francis Marion and Thomas Sumter, they could not win the war without the help of the Continental Army. Unfortunately, the hero of Saratoga, Horatio Gates was defeated at Camden, South Carolina, marking the lowest point of the war in the south. These episodes, as disastrous as they were, in the long run, would prove to be the beginning of the end of the American Revolution.
