The paper discusses how Gary Nash, in his work "Race and Revolution", demonstrates that early colonial patriots recognized that the ideals that Americans had fought for required the complete abolition of slavery. The paper describes how Nash explodes such long-standing myths such as the idea that abolishing slavery was just not pragmatic. The paper looks at Nash's contention that the failed struggle of the Founding Fathers to create true justice means now Americans still struggle with the issue of race because the fathers passed off the responsibility to later generations. The paper explains how Nash introduces many ideas regarding this period of history that may be surprising to a layperson, and perhaps even to a historical expert.
