Declaration of Independence

Discover books celebrating the founding of the USA, exploring revolutionary history, founding fathers, and the birth of our nation. 

Our selection includes David McCullough's 1776 that vividly recounts the pivotal year in American history when the nation's independence hung in the balance. Through meticulous research and compelling narrative, McCullough brings to life the challenges faced by George Washington and his army as they fought against the formidable British forces. 

The Declaration of Independence, penned by Thomas Jefferson and adopted on July 4, 1776, remains one of the most influential documents in human history. It boldly proclaims the fundamental principles of liberty, equality, and self-governance that form the bedrock of American democracy. 

And, among others, Miracle at Philadelphia. Catherine Drinker Bowen delves into the Constitutional Convention of 1787, where the framers gathered to design the framework of the United States government. Bowen skillfully narrates the intense debates, compromises, and visionary thinking that resulted in the drafting of the U.S. Constitution.
