The World Almanac Library of the American Revolution is an eight-volume series that tells the story of the founding of the United States of America. The series shows how the American Revolution was more than just a series of battles-it was a revolution of ideas. During the course of the conflict, American colonists, loyal subjects of the British Crown, came to believe that the only way they could assert their rights was to declare independence from Britain. Illustrated by maps and colorful pictures, and featuring historic documents, the series brings alive the struggle for American independence. Book jacket.
