posted a Quick Tip about 1776. June 04, 2011
1776
Outstanding, narratively lined book about the first year of the American Revolution. We learn in school that America was the underdog against the United Kingdom, but after reading 1776, you realize that …

The Revolutionary Paul Revere
It's not often I find myself in disagreement with William J. Bennett -- okay, that's not true: I disagree with him on a lot of things -- but I *particularly* disagree with his characterization of Paul …

The Revolutionary Paul Revere
It feels odd to me to review the Revolutionary Paul Revere since admittedly; I did not make it more than 6 chapters into the book. This is odd for me, since I love history and usually devour books about …

The Revolutionary Paul Revere
"Steady, vigorous, sensible and perservering". These are the words that the American revolutionary Dr. Thomas Young used to describe his friend and fellow political activist Paul Revere …

1776
1776 is a wonderful book for many reasons, but one of my main reasons for loving it, is its portrait of a flawed, worried, and brave George Washington. For generations readers have studied a George Washington …

Wind Dancer
Wind Dancer by Jamie Carie is a sexy, but faithful historical romance. Isabelle Renoir was raised unusually  in Colonial America. She knows how to fire a rifle, loves the outdoors, and refuses to …

David McCullough is a masterful storyteller and really brings history to life. This work follows the first year of The Revolutionary War, paying particular attention to Washington's movements and his …

I should tell you that I'm a voracious reader – when I have time to read. So don't misunderstand me when I call 1776 the "page-turner that took me three months to read."  Written by the brilliant …

I first read this book when I was in fifth grade and enjoyed it more when I reread it decades later. I still consider it one of the best books of historical fiction ever written. Johnny Tremain is an …

Richard Weaver's famous book title Ideas Have Consequences has almost become a cliché these days, but if there's one book where the idea behind it truly applies, this one might be it. It may seem boringly …

1776
1776 is not the story of a year--not even a year of the American Revolution--but is rather a military history of the Continental Army from late 1775 until early 1777 with an emphasis on the development …

Being a big David McCullough fan, it did not take much prodding for me to purchase this book. I was not sorry I did, from the first page to the last. I am a very strong believer that everyone should learn …

Those schoolroom portraits of George Washington standing on the prow of a boat crossing the Delaware, or a trio of gritty Revolutionary soldiers marching with Old Glory, are so ingrained in the American …

David McCullough is a fine historian as his many books demonstrate. In "1776" McCullough paints a compelling, moving portrait of George Washington and the few other leaders who had the courage to face …

I have read, and thoroughly enjoyed, all of Mr. McCullough's previos books, and this latest one is no exception. He takes just one year of the American Revolution, and examines it in detail. It was a …

Pulitzer prize-winning historian David McCullough, who focused on one man (John Adams) in his last work, now focuses on one year in "1776." In "John Adams," he revealed not only the external situations, …

I read this book as a 10 year old growing up in Australia, and who knew nothing of American history. It was in a nut-shell, absolutely wonderful, and was one of the many books that really made an imapct …
