Not much good to say about this "book." It's more of a feel good booklet for whose who lean to the left politically. I expected a bit better from Colonial Williamsburg. Don't waste your money.

Thanks to stunning photography of life in 1776 Williamsburg reenacted we get a clearer look at history including farmers, blacksmiths, women and children, Native Americans and enslaved people. I was swept away by the writing and got caught up in the excitement of the day. This is a great read and one I hope kids will enjoy outside of a school setting.

I wish I would have realized that this book is revisionish history. I don't want to read rewritten history. I should have known by the title..."A New Look...", or by the society who created it.

The cover of this book features an African American reenactor dressed in the uniform of a Continental solider. This image beautifully encapsulates the author's "New Look" at the American Revolution. By following the history of Williamsburg Virginia through the Revolution, the reader is able to follow the big themes of the struggle as they are played out in a particular place. There are not a lot of children's history books that do this.

What I found to be particularly valuable in this book was the examination of the role African Americans played during the War. They made up nearly 50% of the Williamsburg's population. This emphasis points to the central irony of the conflict. How could an incipient nation be fighting for liberty while at the same time condoning the practice of slavery? It is a deep contradiction that played out for the next century.

Finally, another great aspect of the book are the photos of Colonial reenactors. For a young child, there is nothing like looking at the material culture of the age to bring history to life. This is a great book and will of interest to both parent and child alike. Highly recommended!
