Colonial America : building toward independence / Richard Worth.

Worth, Richard. (Author).


On July 4, 1776, the delegates of the Second Continental Congress signed the Declaration of Independence, and thirteen British colonies began the journey to become a nation. However, the move toward independence began much earlier than that. From the first colonies at Roanoke and Jamestown to the first shots of the American Revolution, author Richard Worth explores the colonists every move from newcomers to nation.
