The spirit of 'seventy-six : the story of the American Revolution as told by participants by Henry Steele Commager( Book )

44 editions published between 1925 and 2002 in English and held by 3,543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who shall write the history of the American Revolution? Who can write it? asked John Adams in 1815. Renowned scholars Henry Steele Commager and Richard B. Morris have provided a prudent, perceptive answer--the participants themselves--and in the process have fashioned from the vast source material a thrilling chronological narrative. The Spirit of 'Seventy-Six allows readers to experience events long-entombed in textbooks as they unfold for the first time for both Loyalists and Patriots: the Boston Tea Party, Bunker Hill, the Declaration of Independence, and more. In letters, journals, diaries, official documents, and personal recollections, the timeless figures of the Revolution emerge in all their human splendor and folly to stand beside the nameless soldiers. Profusely illustrated and enhanced by cogent commentary, this book examines every aspect of the war, including the Loyalist and British views; treason and prison escapes; songs and ballads; the home front and diplomacy abroad. In short, the editors have wrought a balanced, sweeping, and compelling documentary history

The forging of the Union, 1781-1789 by Richard B Morris( Book )

14 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 1,791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covering the crucial years from the winning of independence to the creation of the federal government, The Forging of the Union may be considered a sequel to Richard B. Morris's Bancroft Award-winning book, The Peacemakers. Reexamining an enormous fund of original sources and the latest monographs, Morris treats the Confederation interlude as an extraordinary, if brief, period of trial and experimentation. Grave doubts were entertained on a wide variety of issues: the survival of an American union, perpetuation of republican values, the power of a strengthened central government to deal with the great European states, prosperity, sectional tensions, and secessionist murmurings. Would a durable union in fact perpetuate a government by the elite to the detriment of the common people? - Back cover
