Overview

America is on the brink of independence. Building a new nation is far from easy. Meet Americans such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin who create a government in which "all men are created equal." Also learn about the groups, such as Native Americans, African Americans, and women, who do not play a part in this "equality."

This book describes in detail the everyday lives of the leaders, soldiers, farmers, workers, and pioneers who helped the new country grow. Each book in the series uses reconstruction illustrations and photographs along with clear text to bring the story of our nation to life.
