Brilliantly conceived and beautifully packaged, this unique narrative spans the French-Indian Wars of the 1760s and the Jacksonian era - a period in which the fires of rebellion were stoked, and a fledgling nation took her place among the world's powers. Through text and photographs, we are immersed in the civil, military, and political events of a momentous age. Readers relive the period by holding and examining faithful reproductions from America's finest private collections and public archives. In this handsome collectible edition, we meet the rebels, statesmen, and commanders who forged a new country, and read their accounts of the battles and alliances that helped birth a nation.
