Jon Shafer: in 1775, the 13 British Colonies in North America broke out in open revolution against the empire and sought to forge their own path alone as an independent nation.
Citing exploitive practices by the British Empire, the Colonists were angered over what they saw as unjust taxation, lack of representation in the British government and in the case of some, loss of potential fortunes which could be made trading with other parts of the world.
Following the Battles at Lexington, Concord and Bunker Hill, the British are bottled up in Boston by the newly formed Colonial Continental Army led by General George Washington.
However, the Colonies are fragile and have nowhere near the resources of a worldwide empire, so the situation is dangerous for both sides.
Shall you help lead the Colonies into freedom or fight to keep the Empire intact?
Multiplayer: you play as either the British or the Colonists
Unzip in BtS/Mods folder (Charlemagne, etc). Load BtS, then the Mod or double-click directly on the file American_Revolution.CivBeyondSwordWBSave in the PrivateMaps folder.
Note: there is an underscore (_) in the Mod's name in-between American and Revolution.
PS (29 January 2016): there is now an alternative scenario proposed (American_Revolution_France) which allows to play as the French (with New Orleans and St Louis as French cities instead of Spanish). Special!
