Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Focusing on the lives of four individuals (a Massachusetts merchant, a Delaware farmer, a Virginia plantation owner, and the founder of the African Methodist Episcopal Church), this work evokes the contours and texture of life in 18th-century America. Smith makes imaginative use of contemporary records and, most especially, includes excellent illustrations and photographs of common objects. In doing so, she illuminates and details aspects of economic, social, political, and material life. This is a very valuable work on early American history. It will be required reading not only for students of the era, but also for those who wish to fully appreciate the new Smithsonian exhibit which it complements. Roy H. Tryon, Delaware State Archives, Dover
School Library Journal
YA A beautiful book that grew out of the exhibit of three period rooms from houses built in the 18th Century. The first years of an independent U.S. are evoked through the lives of four ordinary people: a Massachusetts merchant, a poor Delaware farmer descended from indentured servants, a Virginia tobacco plantation slave owner and the free black founder of the Philadelphia African Methodist Episcopal Church. Against a backdrop of social, political and industrial events, readers learn about the experiences of the people who lived in these rooms. Many black-and-white photographs of household utensils are placed within the wide margins; also included are 16 pages of full-color photographs of colonial paintings, rugs, quilts, utensils, etc. This social history, with its many photographs, will provide an understanding of the diverse manner in which early citizens lived and an interesting insight into their philosophy and values.
