Although it was one of the least populous of the thirteen colonies, New Hampshire played an important role in the founding of the United States. From its earliest settlers to the patriots who fought at Bunker Hill, the colony's rugged citizens exemplified New Hampshire's motto, "Live Free or Die."

Review:

"A compilation of excerpts from primary documents whose subjects range from the origins of European settlement in the New World to the establishment of the Bill of Rights. The sources provide coverage of certain underrepresented groups, with letters from women, examples of rules that children should follow, and a bill asking African Americans to enlist in the Continental Army. The shortened versions of the documents offer a good introduction to materials written at the beginning of our nation's history and allow students to grasp some of the main issues. The editor does a good job of explaining material that could be difficult by including a translation in brackets of words that are not common today."
-- School Library Journal (October 2002) (School Library Journal 20021001)

"These titles will be useful for reports."

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-In five chapters, the colonies of New Hampshire and Delaware are described from the very beginnings to life after independence. In between, the political happenings and everyday life are covered and the major personalities are examined. Written in a clear, concise conversational tone, these overviews present information effectively. Through primary-source quotations, readers are introduced to the people and events of the times. New Hampshire gives a better sense of what day-to-day life was like, but Delaware does an adequate job. A better series for that kind of information is "The Thirteen Colonies" (Children's). However, this series brings a more literary approach to the research. The language is tighter, more succinct, and on a higher reading level. Black-and-white photos and reproductions add interest. Solid additions on subjects that are always researched in schools, made even more valuable because of the primary-source material.
