Conquered into Liberty

Two Centuries of Battles along the Great Warpath that Made the American Way of War

Conquered into Liberty

“A brilliant history of our least-known wars on our most-ignored frontier—our northern border with Canada” (Los Angeles Times).

Redirecting our attention from the Civil War to the real conflict that consolidated the United States, Cohen describes how five groups— the British, French, Americans, Canadians, and Indians—fought over the key to the North American continent: the corridor running from Albany to Montreal, known to Native Americans as the “Great Warpath.” He explores how a distinctly American approach to war developed along these 200 miles, reintroducing characters we thought we knew—an admirable Benedict Arnold, a traitorous Ethan Allen, and a devious George Washington. A gripping read grounded in serious scholarship, Conquered into Liberty will enchant readers for decades to come.
