J. L. Bell is a writer from Newton specializing in the start of the American Revolution. The Road to Concord is a new look at the start of the Revolutionary War, tracing the genesis of the fateful British march in April 1775 to little-known events of the preceding September. In that month a militia uprising in the Massachusetts countryside set off an “arms race” for artillery. Men on each side of the conflict grabbed any cannon they could find in shore batteries, ships, and merchants’ stores. The Road to Concord is the first book to tell the full story of those cannons.
