Summary
A series of letters between father and son (the father is Henry Laurens, South Carolinian patriot and soon to be president of the 1st Continental Congress ... and the son, John Laurens - student in London) provide an historical and human perspective for the dramatic events that led to the American Revolution. Being in London in the 1770's, John is exposed to the English point-of-view regarding the justice of Parliament's recent taxes and actions against the colonies. In a pub, he gets into a tangle with a surly Londoner over "taxation without representation," and civil disobedience. John attends a British court trial in which an American slave (brought to England) is declared to be free; the judge declares that the "air in Great Britain is too pure" for slavery. Explores many other avenues on both sides to reveal an excellent background
