P65 25 07/12/01, 09:34 Themes and Periods was the first and indeed the most powerful and enduring interpretative model. The generation that had lived through the Revolution was succeeded by the romantic historians of the early to mid-nineteenth century. Most were Yankees and, as sectionalism permeated the expanding republic, so too it colored their histories of a New England-centered War for Independence. George Bancroft, for example, was Massachusetts-born and Harvard-educated. 10 During the nineteenth century, the United States and its people and economy expanded at a phenomenal rate, from a set of comparatively minor colonial outposts to a major world power.

All contributed to the ferment and unrest that underlay the American Revolution. Moreover, the conservative fears expressed by Madison and Hamilton in the Federalist Papers, and later analyzed by Gordon Wood in his two books, now become more comprehensible. To the Federalists, late eighteenth-century American society was in danger of being torn apart by divisions of all sorts. Even a successful war for independence had not united Americans – it seemed only to have divided them more deeply. That conservative elites and, indeed, many others found solace in a common effort to create a strong central government, of and by the better sort, says as much about the rebellious nature of late eighteenth-century American society as it does about a reaction against the leveling radicalism of Paine and Jefferson.

19 Premised upon an acknowledgement of the existence and significance of class and economic differences within Revolutionary American society, the Progressive analysis added a third interpretative model to Revolutionary historiography. The Imperial and the Progressive Schools dominated the writing and teaching of the American Revolution through the early twentieth century. Not surprisingly, however, the social, economic, and political transformations brought about by the Wall Street Crash, the New Deal, the end of the Depression, World War II, and the rise of the United States to world leadership combined to have a profound and lasting effect on historical thinking about the Revolution.
