Nathan Kozuskanich leads off in "Pennsylvania's Revolution"

Dr. Nathan Kozuskanich has long studied and contributed to the early history of the United States, including a brief on the US Second Amendment that was submitted to the US Supreme Court. Now he has contributed his expertise to an important new book on the revolution in Pennsylvania, where a great deal of the political and ideological action took place. His is the leadoff essay in Penn State University's Pennsylvania's Revolution, “'Falling Under the Domination Totally of Presbyterians': The Paxton Riots and the Coming of the Revolution in Pennsylvania." The publisher says:

Pennsylvania’s Revolution embodies a new era of scholarship about the state’s Revolutionary past. It breaks from a narrowly focused study of Philadelphia and the 1776 Constitution to evaluate Pennsylvania’s internal conflicts during the Revolutionary period.
