1776 by David McCullough

stephtd, January 6, 2007

I usually have a hard time following battles and scenes, but Mr. McCullough brings the Revolution to life. I found the portrayal of George Washington, as a human being, with imperfections and weaknesses, but with the quality of Perseverance particularly applicable to my life and helpful to my understanding the heritage of the founding of this country. The newness of such a thing, breaking away from a monarch, choosing to join together as a nation, making a conscious decision to be a nation - in all likelihood the founders were the first people on earth to do so, blew me away. SOmetimes Patriotism is just Jingoism in costume, but when you read what these men and women did it is truly stirring.
