The Duke of Stockbridge
A Romance of Shays' RebellioneBook
In the aftermath of the Revolutionary War, America remained very volatile. One outgrowth of this was Shays' Rebellion, an armed uprising in Massachusetts that pitted a group of dissatisfied residents against the nascent state authorities. It may seem like an unlikely backdrop for budding romance, but Edward Bellamy pulls it off with aplomb, balancing rich historical detail with tender emotions.
