Britain's Occupation of Philadelphia During the American Revolution
Explore “the disaffected,” a group of people who were pursued, pressured, and at times persecuted during the British occupation of Philadelphia, not because they chose the wrong side of the Revolution but because they tried not to choose a side at all. For these people, the war was neither a glorious cause to be won nor an unnatural rebellion to be suppressed, but a dangerous and costly calamity to be navigated with care. Discover the desperate measures Revolutionary authorities embraced in their quest to secure their own legitimacy and the consequences of a Revolutionary ideology that assumed the nation's people to be a united and homogenous front.
