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.
