DURHAM, N.H. -- University of New Hampshire History Professor Eliga Gould is a commentator in a new epic 13-hour History Channel series called The Revolution that premiered June 4. The series will air every Sunday night for the rest of the summer (13 episodes in all).

Gould is featured in episodes 4, 8, 9, 10 and 11. This week’s episode, American Crisis, is the first to feature Gould and picks up as the new nation stares at the stark realization that it could soon be dead. Desperate and determined, General George Washington gambles on a brilliant yet dangerously daring stroke to save his army and America.

Specializing in colonial and Revolutionary America, as well as modern Britain and the history of the British Empire, Gould has been at UNH since 1993. He is currently working on two book projects: Zones of Law, Zones of Violence: Britain, America and the Legal Geography of the Revolutionary Atlantic and The World of the American Revolution. In 2000, The Persistence of Empire: British Political Culture in the Age of the American Revolution was published to critical acclaim and resulted in appearances for Gould on CSPAN and Voice of America.

Gould lives in Durham with his family.
