The darkest hours of that tumultuous year were as dark as any Americans have known. Especially in our own tumultuous time, 1776 is powerful testimony to how much is owed to a rare few in that brave founding epoch, and what a miracle it was that things turned out as they did.
Written as a companion work to his celebrated biography of John Adams, David McCullough's 1776 is another landmark in the literature of American history.

wonderful entry into the Revolutionary War
knowing hardly nothing of what went on during the Revolutionary War, I found his account to be well researched and comprehensive, showing everyone's weaknesses and the actual lay of the land. I was very impressed and I was very sad for it to be over. He is a wonderful historian and storyteller.
