Overview

Before the year 1776, North America was primarily made up of neglected English colonies. The citizens themselves were subjects of the English monarchy, and the system of governance was nothing like the democracy we associate with the U.S. today. That is, of course, until a few brave people decided that they were willing to sacrifice anything, including their lives, to secure their right to self-governance.

In the book 1776, accomplished historian David McCullough presents the series of events that led to the British American colonies declaring independence and waging war on their rulers. McCullough wrote the book based on some of the most vivid narratives from newspapers, letters, journals and other written accounts of the time. He invites us to the United Colonies of 1776, and allows us to watch the revolution unfold from the eyes of the British government, ordinary citizens and even the leaders of the revolution, including its commander in chief, George Washington himself.
