Patrick Spero’s book “Frontier Rebels” is the untold story of the “Black Boys,” a rebellion on the American frontier in 1765 that sparked the American Revolution. In a talk based on his book, Spero draws on largely forgotten manuscript sources from archives across North America to recast the familiar narrative of the Revolution, moving the action from the eastern seaboard to the treacherous western frontier.
