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.

Great! I like the book. It was great! I'll let other people know that the book was great during the Revolutionary War.

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.
