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 …

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 …

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 …
