Join University of South Carolina Professor Woody Holton as he discusses his book Forced Founders: Indians, Slaves, and the Origins of the American Revolution in the South. Slaves and Native Americans both played a crucial, if indirect, role in turning white Americans like Thomas Jefferson and George Washington into revolutionaries.
