Editor says, The September 2008 Edition of History Magazine included a feature article 'Trouble in Parliament' in which William Stroock looks at the Whigs' opposition to King George III on the eve of the American Revolution. In this post we look at a changed scenario for William Pitt, Edmund Burke and Charles James Fox where the American Revolution inspires the Whigs to challenge for the mastery of the British State itself.
