For those of us with the traditional concept of the Revolutionary War, that of Minutemen, Lexington, and Concord, “Independence Lost,” by Kathleen DuVal, will be an eye opener.

The Jefferson County League of Women Voters Nonfiction Book Club’s May selection covers the mosaic of activity along the Gulf Coast around the time of the Revolution, outside the 13 rebelling colonies. DuVal uses composite characters to explain the role of the British loyalists, the French, Cajuns, Choctaws and other tribes, free blacks and slaves in the struggle, which resulted in major British defeats at Baton Rouge, Pensacola, and Mobile.

The final meeting to discuss the book will be held Saturday, May 19, at 9:30 a.m., at Brookdale Westland Meridian, 10695 W. 17th Ave., Lakewood.

All are welcome at either meeting, which are the last of this season. Book club meetings will resume in September.
