Overview

Brilliantly conceived and beautifully packaged, this unique narrative spans the French-Indian Wars of the 1760s and the Jacksonian era—a period in which the fires of rebellion were stoked, and a fledgling nation took her place among the world’s powers. Through text and photographs, we are immersed in the civil, military, and political events of a momentous age. Readers relive the period by holding and examining faithful reproductions from America’s finest private collections and public archives.

In this handsome collectible edition, we meet the rebels, statesmen, and commanders who forged a new country, and read their accounts of the battles and alliances that helped birth a nation.

Among the documents and effects included are:

• Thomas Jefferson’s first draft of the Declaration of Independence with marginal notes by John Adams and Benjamin Franklin.

• Hand-drawn map of “Prince Town” (Princeton), prepared by a Patriot spy, showing Washington the layout of buildings and the position of British guns.

• George Washington’s Inaugural Address notes.
