KIRKUS REVIEW

Authors of Old Liberty Bell and Paul Revere give us the story of our fight for independence, from the calling of the Continental Congress to the drafting of our Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. The story is told largely through the eyes of John Adams, and gives a credible and colorful picture of the redtape and delays; even in those days, and of the events, moods of the people, the war -- and the personalities that dominated the scene. Then, more briefly sketched in, the first President, the establishment of the national capital in Washington, the War of 1812, the 50th anniversary of the Declaration, the Centennial in Philadelphis. History of the time highlighted; a valuable book for supplementary reading in Junior High, and for public and home libraries.
