Overview

Join the editors of TIME to walk with legends and re-live the incredible story of America's birth. Here is history as only TIME can tell it, as such fascinating, complex characters as Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and George Washington transform a handful of remote British colonies into a new nation, conceived in liberty. Here is the wise, eccentric Benjamin Franklin - half statesman, half scientist. Here is the bitter rivalry between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, which ended in a duel to the death. Here are the incredible journeys of Lewis and Clark, guided through the wilderness and across the Rockies by the Native American woman, Sacajawea. Here are the true stories behind such legendary figures as Paul Revere, Betsy Ross, Benedict Arnold and Molly Pitcher. Richly illustrated with maps, charts and historic illustrations, this is the story of every American's birthright, as told through America's most fascinating lives.
