From Library Staff

What kind of world did children in 1776 know, and what freedoms were their parents fighting to maintain? Separate chapters on slaves and Native Americans make it clear that these groups' liberties were not a part of the plan.

Sometimes it's difficult to understand the way the world was long ago. This book helps readers understand what it was like to live in different colonies at the time of the American Revolution.
