The American Revolution


An informative overview of the American Revolution, this book covers pre-Revolution dissatisfaction, wartime struggles, and the aftermath and its special challenges. This volume helps readers understand the roots, results, and spirit of the American Revolution, but lets them make their own deductions about many lingering issues. Readers will also learn about some of the American Revolution's key players--the Founding Fathers--with a special section on the nation's first president, George Washington, and features on the likes of Abigail Adams, Mary Otis, and Thomas Paine.
