Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: A New York Times Bestseller 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. 1776 is the story of the Revolutionary War during the nation's tumultuous beginning, and those who, at great sacrifice, fought for what we assume to be our rightful heritage and precious ideals. This is narrative history at its best, bringing to life an extraordinary period and a vast array of extraordinary characters on both sides of the conflict. It is also powerful testimony to how much is owed to a rare few in that brave, founding era. David McCullough has become the historian that Americans turn to most to tell us our own story.

Synopsis: With a new introduction by David McCullough, 1776: The Illustrated Edition brings 140 powerful images and 37 removable replicas of source documents to this remarkable drama.
In 1776, David McCullough's bestselling account of a pivotal year in our nation's struggle, readers learned of the greatest defeats, providential fortune, and courageous triumphs of George Washington and his bedraggled army. Now, in 1776: The Illustrated Edition, the efforts of the Continental Army are made even more personal, as an excerpted version of the original book is paired with letters, maps, and seminal artwork. More than three dozen source documents -- including a personal letter George Washington penned to Martha about his commission, a note informing the mother of a Continental soldier that her son has been taken prisoner, and a petition signed by Loyalists pledging their allegiance to the King -- are re-created in uniquely designed envelopes throughout the book and secured with the congressional seal.
Both a distinctive art book and a collectible archive, 1776: The Illustrated Edition combines a treasury of eighteenth-century paintings, sketches, documents, and maps with storytelling by our nation's preeminent historian to tell the story of 1776 as never before.
Review: Amazon Best of the Month, October 2007: With apologies to local museums, it's hard to imagine an interactive look at the birth of American independence that exceeds 1776: The Illustrated Edition. Packed with striking replicas of letters, maps, and portraits, this updated version of David McCullough's 2005 bestseller provides readers with unedited first-hand accounts of America's initial steps toward sovereignty. Its engaging narrative blends beautifully with personal notes from iconic leaders and reveals the determination, bravery, and good ol' blind luck that founded our country. --Dave Callanan
