|Summary, etc.:|| On November 16, 1776, a ship flying the red-and-white-striped flag of the Continental Congress entered the port of St. Eustatius in the West Indies. Adhering to the custom on entering a foreign port, the ship fired a salute, and the guns of the island's fort returned a ritual response. This act of recognition acknowledged that the vessel and its flag represented a legitimate nation. It was the first official salute to the United States of America, and although it took only minutes to carry out, it would have the most profound repercussions through the events of the next five years. Now, in this masterful study, Barbara W. Tuchman illuminates for us the ways in which not only America and England were affected by the Revolution, but Holland and France, and, by extension, the entire Old World as well. -- Provided by publisher.
