1776: A New Look at Revolutionary Williamsburg Reviews
Recommended Ages: grades 4 and upThis book talks about life in Williamsburg, Virginia before and during the Revolutionary War. It takes a particular interest in African-Americans in Williamsburg, and their role in the city. It includes color photographs of reenactments from Colonial Williamsburg as well as information about the founding of Colonial Williamsburg as a living history museum.
This was a great way to use the resources at Colonial Williamsburg to write a history book. Everyone is already in costume! There are gorgeous photos that make me feel like at was transported to the time and place where it all happened.
I did enjoy the pictures though.
A fluffy little kids read - but allll the "missing CW feels"
Very good book on the early history of our country. Great photographs. I loved that the author managed to present mostly age old information from a totally new perspective.
