SummaryAdd a Summary
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.
