About This Book

Drafted in 1776, the Declaration of Independence remains one of our nation's most significant documents. But do you know the real story behind the events leading up to this critical moment in history?

Russell Freedman's Give Me Liberty! The Story of the Declaration of Independence recounts the American colonists' arduous journey to freedom in a richly detailed narrative, complete with prints and illustrations. It is astonishing that a document as awe-inspiring as the Declaration of Independence could be produced under the conditions outlined in this book. While bad news trickled in from the Continental Army, delegates worked together to unite the colonies in revolution against Mother England. Reading Freedman's words, the reader is transported back in time and ready to join the fight for independence.
