Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The title here pretty much says it all. The text draws from countless original sources to tell the story of our country's founding. This 1975 volume is a wonderful resource.

For readers who like their history straight from the sources, The Spirit of Seventy-Six is the best they can find on the Revolution. Anyone with an interest in the roots of American history and national character has much to learn from it.
