Critique of Robert A Gross Minutemen and Their World The Minutemen and Their World by Robert Gross focuses directly on life and struggles in Concord in the seventeen hundreds He provides a fresh outlook and new style that works to the readers advantage This style of writing separates Gross from many other writers As other writers deal with the colonies as a whole Gross separates and investigates on a more specific level He focuses on the lives of the farmers and ordinary towns people This inside out approach allows the reader to see how decisions effected everyday life for ordinary people Grosss analytical style called new social history is compounded by primary documents and statistical analysis of many records kept through out history This is to the readers advantage because not only does this it give us an accurate account of what happened in the 1700s but it also provides numerical statistic to back up the authors presentation of the truth Gross also writes in a story like fashion that makes this book easy to read Robert Gross starts with an overview of some of the main problems that Concord has as city to stay together and work as one town He explains that Concord has trouble staying united The people of this city often dont agree on important topics such as politics and religion These topics were raised and discussed in town meetings that were held in the center on the town This posed a problem because Concords population was scattered over many miles and the trip to town became very tedious This resulted in the separation of the towns people and the foundation of multiple smaller communities that held counsels of their own These assemblies were not usually connected to the main counsel and did not always fallow by the same rules They often made rules that catered to their needs Gross believes that the problem lies on the leadership of Concord
