1776 by David McCullough

The year 1776 was a hard, exciting year for the fledgling United States. Independence was declared and the Continental Army won a couple key battles (and lost a whole bunch). David McCullough describes the events of that fateful year with all the thoroughness, passion, and research one would expect from that author. Nearly half of the book is pictures, notes, bibliography, and index. I highly recommend 1776 to anyone interested in our country’s beginnings.
