Review: The Spirit of 1776: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness During the American Revolution sel. by Peter Seymour

Synopsis: A collection of spoken and written words from the Revolution, capturing the spirit and passion of those who fought for America's freedom

Review: This is a fine collection of sayings, many of which are familiar. Like parts of The Declaration of Independence, Patrick Henry's "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death" speech, and the opening of Thomas Paine's Common Sense. Colorful illustrations are interspersed with the words, many from the time period. This is worthwhile collection and an excellent place to start with some of the works during this violent and passionate time.
