An interesting and informative history of the events that led to the Declaration of Independence. The author begins with a good discussion of the background to the split between America and England. The military and political events that led to July 4, 1776 are covered very well. John Adams and Thomas Jefferson receive a special focus. The importance Adams role in the Second Continental Congress shows him to be a leader of the move for independence. The author writes very well and has an excellent command of the material. This is a pleasant way to learn about his very important event in American history. Highly recommended.

This is a very well done book. it tells a very remarkable and Inspiring story.
Ferling is a billiant author. Restrained, literate and with a compassionate, understanding eye for the past, its eccenticities and strange relevance to the present. This man should be acclaimed as a great historical writer. And who better to read the work than Fass. If you appreciate serious, enlightened history this book, and the reading of it, is for you.
