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.
