Just finished reading 1776. This is a compelling story of the birth of our country and the struggle surrounding Congress’ issuance of the Declaration of Independence. I highly recommend this book to everyone.
It provides unusual insight into the American spirit. The persistence of the common men who joined Washington’s army is cause for celebration and provides inspiration.
The leadership of General Washington, like most men, was less than perfect, but nonethless is a model of leading by example and personal challenge to a higher cause. The book carries a great study of the making of a military leader and ultimately the leader of the American people.
A great read. Well researched and documented with details beyond description.
Get it and read it.
