Washington's Crossing

Washington's Crossing

by David Hackett Fischer

Washington's Crossing frames the events of the winter of 1776-1777 during the American Revolution. The iconic painting of Washington crossing the Delaware is indeed a passionate image, but it is certainly stylized. It is this symbol, this myth of American history, that Fischer argues as the turning point for the psychological victory of the Revolution, the morale of the American troops locked in a miserable winter, and the unyielding proof of the tireless quest for a free America.
Paul Revere's Ride

Paul Revere's Ride

Revolutionary Characters

Revolutionary Characters

by Gordon S Wood

In this brilliantly illuminating group portrait of the men who came to be known as the Founding Fathers, the incomparable Gordon Wood has written a book that seriously asks, ?What made these men great???and shows us, among many other things, just how much character did in fact matter. The life of each?Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Franklin, Hamilton, Madison, Paine?is presented individually as well as collectively, but the thread that binds these portraits together is the idea of character as a lived...
