New features include: new introduction for the second edition; new chapter on Native Americans; revised and expanded bibliographic essay; updated historiography throughout the text; and, companion Website with study aids, maps, and documentary resources."Revolutionary America" also examines those who were excluded from the immediate benefits and rights secured by the creation of the new republic.

Cogliano describes the experiences of women, Native Americans, and African Americans, each of whose experiences challenged the principle that 'all men are created equal', which lay at the heart of the American Revolution. Placing the political revolution at the core of the story, "Revolutionary America" presents a clear history of the War of Independence, and lays a distinctive foundation for students and scholars of the Early Republic.
