The American Revolution: written in scriptural, or, ancient historical style (1796) is an account of the American Revolution written by Richard Snowden (1753-1825).[1][2][3][4]

Overview[edit]

Despite adopting the "scriptural" style, the work is relatively devoid of religious material.[5] The work was aimed at schoolchildren, with Snowden writing that the style was chosen as the style "most suitable to the capacities of young people".[5] The work was published with verse numbers and used "Old English".

In the work, modern place names are replaced with archaic-sounding names, e.g. France is call Gaul.[5]
