1776

1776

By David McCullough. In this masterful book, McCullough tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence—when the whole American cause was riding on their success, without which all hope for independence would have been dashed and the noble ideals of the Declaration would have amounted to little more than words on paper. Based on extensive research in both American and British archives, 1776 is a powerful drama written with extraordinary narrative vitality. It is the story of Americans in the ranks, men of every shape, size, and color, farmers, schoolteachers, shoemakers, no-accounts, and mere boys turned soldiers. It is also the story of the King's men, British commander William Howe, and his highly disciplined redcoats who looked on their rebel foes with contempt and fought with a valor too little known. 386 pages.
