1776, by David McCullough.
I really like McCullough’s books. 1776 is one of his shorter books and I found it very enjoyable. The book covers many events of the American revolution during the year 1776. Much of the story is told with George Washington as the central character but other major characters are emphasized as well.
McCullough’s purpose is not to show the providential hand of God in America’s founding, but if you already believe that God was active in the orchestration of events, this book will definitely reinforce your belief. All Americans and Christians in particular will do well to immerse themselves in American history.
