Kathleen DuVal is Bowman & Gordon Gray Professor of History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her field of expertise is early American history, particularly interactions among American Indians, Europeans, and Africans on the borderlands of North America. In Independence Lost, DuVal recounts an untold story of as rich and significant as that of the Founding Fathers: the history of the Revolutionary Era as experienced by slaves, American Indians, women, and British loyalists living on Florida's Gulf Coast.

The book is the winner of the Journal of the American Revolution "Book of the Year Award" and a finalist for the George Washington Book Prize.
