The American Revolution was shaped by clashing ideas about the future of the West and who should control it. In 1765 on the Pennsylvania frontier, a group of settlers known as the Black Boys waged a popular insurgency against the British Empire’s Native American policies. Join the Anderson House as Patrick Spero, author of the new book Frontier Rebels, discusses this overlooked conflict and sheds light on the origins of American independence.
