rating: 4 of 5 stars
I listened to this audio book driving back and forth from Seattle and from the hospital where my mom had hip surgery (20+ miles from home).
American History is fascinating and I don't understand why our school curriculum isn't able to tell the story in a way that's interesting to children and young adults
1776 is about the American Revolution, focusing on George Washington as general. It's amazing that the undisciplined, suffering American army was able to win this war. The British troops were well fed and housed and outnumbered the Americans by a huge margin. Nonetheless, they were outwitted in the end.
I would recommend this as a compliment to the miniseries or book, John Adams.
