SummaryAdd a Summary
When we were tasked with searching for a book, I was hesitant on what I wanted to find. I wanted to read a book that I already had knowledge on and wanted to learn more about. After a while, I wanted to learn about one of my favorite topics in history, revolutions. It didn't take long but I stumbled upon a book discussing the American Revolution, and from there I started to read, "1776". Made by David G. McCullough in 2005, this 294 page book tells the personal emotions and timeline of the American Revolution, which ranges from discussing the Siege Of Boston, to the countless American defeats. I found the book to be very informal and really gave me another perspective on the brutal wars, cold weather, heat strokes and anxiety that people were forced to endure to secure independence.
1776, one of the most pivotal years in the history of the United States, is documented by Pulitzer Prize-winning author David McCullough in an extremely readable narrative. Drawing upon vast amounts of American and British documents, he
presents a well-researched account of the fledgling Continental Army fighting for its very existence against the experienced British Redcoats, and delivers a riveting portrayal of the key personalities involved. This is the story of the darkest hours of the American Revolution, and how a nation was forged by sheer determination and not much else.
