ISBN: 978-1-405-16149-7 Chapter One Warfare during the Colonial Era, 1607–1765 John Grenier The colonial period of United States history covers almost seven generations and nearly 160 years (from 1607 to 1765). At no time in American history has society been more diverse than in the colonial period. Indians of a multitude of “nations,” Frenchmen, Spaniards, Britons, Anglo-Americans, Americans, Swedes, Germans, Dutchmen, Africans, and African-Americans inhabited a polyglot North America.

They hoped to make their way in society, and they understood their service to be governed by contractual principles. If their superiors broke the contract, they saw themselves relieved of their obligation and moral responsibility to serve. Anderson’s book helped explain one of the fundamental issues of colonial military history: why the professionals of the British Army viewed the Yankee provincials as such bad soldiers. On the heels of A People’s Army, we received social histories of other locales in colonial America, to include Connecticut (Selesky 1990) and Virginia (Titus 1991), which showed how forming and maintaining an army produced profound social and cultural strains and changes on the societies from which those armies came.
