Colonial Prose and Poetry Volume III: The Growth of the National Spirit, 1710–1775 by Benjamin Franklin, Jonathan Edwards, Benjamin Wells

*Illustrated with over a dozen pictures of the Founding Fathers and the authors.
*Includes Table of Contents

Long before the United States became a free country, Europeans from all backgrounds entered the continent, and they began to commingle with Native Americans, often not peacefully. However, the mixtures of different ethnicities created a diverse and original culture that became quintessentially American by the time the American Revolution started in 1775.

This anthology was compiled by William P. Trent, a professor of English at Columbia. The 57 writers in these three volumes of colonial poetry span more than a century and a half and represent the literary and cultural trends in Colonial North America—from the confrontation with the American Indians to Puritan life to opposition to slavery.

This edition of Colonial Prose and Poetry Volume III contains the writings of 22 authors who were among the most influential leaders and writers of the Revolutionary period. Among the authors in this anthology are Benjamin Franklin, preacher Jonathan Edwards, Royal Governor Thomas Hutchinson, and Dr. Benjamin Church. In addition to pictures of some of the authors, this edition includes over a dozen pictures of Colonial American leaders like William Penn and the Founding Fathers, as well as images of Quakers and Native Americans. It also includes a Table of Contents for easier navigation.
