The Continental Congress: A Primary Source History of the Formation of America's New Government
The Rosen Publishing Group, 2004 - 64 páginas
This is a fascinating look at the making of a new government. When the colonies decided they had had enough of England's taxes and restrictions, they set out to create a new nation. Using primary source documents and images, this book explains the colonies' discontent with their status, as well as their conflict in breaking from their mother country. It describes how our Founding Fathers met for the First Continental Congress, went to war, and created a new government with the Constitution.
