Revolutionary Summer: The Birth of American Independence
The summer months of 1776 witnessed the most consequential events in the story of our country’s founding. While the 13 colonies agreed to secede from the British Empire, the British were dispatching the largest armada ever to cross the Atlantic and crush the rebellion. In his latest narrative, award-winning historian Ellis (First Family, 2010) alternates between the 1776 colonial politics debated by the Continental Congress, and the military stage upon which Washington and his Continental Army waged battle. “Another brilliantly told story by one of our best historians of the early nation,” writes Publishers Weekly.
