David McCullough‘s 1776 is yet another reason why he is one of my favorite historians and authors.  He has this incredible way of inviting the reader into the story.  A few of my favorite quotes have been posted on Instagram.  

So often the Revolutionary War is romanticized.  Not so with this work.  This account is honest and heartfelt – full of sacrifice and suffering.  There was so much that went wrong and so much that could have gone more wrong.

Pick up a copy and let me know what you think.
