This is narrative history at its best, bringing to life an extraordinary period and a vast array of extraordinary characters on both sides of the conflict. It is also powerful testimony to how much is owed to a rare few in that brave, founding era. David McCullough has become the historian that Americans turn to most to tell us our own story.Read Less

1776 by David McCullough
Received this book in great condition. The book is a must read for History buffs. I found the reading very easy and was able to follow the characters from beginning to end without losing sight of their part in history.

American Revolution in 1776
Though I studied the American Revolution in school, this history brought a human feeling to the brave American men like Washington, Knox and others who had seemed so remote before. I live in Brooklyn, and I learned a lot about battles that took place near my home. I highly recommend 1776.

A Must Read
This is probably one of the most important and most misunderstood years in the history of our country. As always, McCullough tells a great story packed with information. If you're interested in the early years of America, this is a must read.
