This seventh volume in the Prelude to Glory series focuses on the details of the final skirmishes of the Revolutionary War following Yorktown and the peace treaty with Great Britain. It gives a lot of information about the financial disaster that the end of the war left for the colonies and the tenuous situation our young country faced under the Articles of Confederation. Ends with the troubles that led to Shay's Rebellion and the call of the colonies to meet to create a different form of govern...more
Enjoyed the history very much.
I loved reading this whole series because it allowed me to learn much more about our countries beginnings than I ever learned in school--but I enjoyed it this time. A fictional family and their friends make the journey through the revolutionary war and on into the establishment of the United States government and the rough economic times that followed the war. Book 9 jumps ahead in time to the war of 1812.

Once I started this series I couldn't stop. I find it fascinating that the U.S. ever made it past the colonial stages with all of the hardships endured and the victorious battles. I suppose I didn't pay much attention in History class, but I never knew that Benedict Arnold was such a bad ass! (prior to selling out his country)
A fun series with a great mix of well researhed history of the US Revolutionary War (with footnotes) and fictional personal items to bring the story to life. The fictional characters are well placed to bring the story out.

This was a very interesting look at what happened after the Revolution. The war is far from over because now the country has to learn how to be the "United" States. I'm a sucker for history, so this fascinated me.

This series if wonderful if you are into revolutionary war era history. Ron Carter's style is very intense--he give extensive detail making scenes come to life. I have loved this entire series!

It took me weeks and weeks to finish this volume. It's worth it though to learn what happened after the war was over.

I really enjoyed this series, but couldn't get into volume 8 and never did finish. One day maybe.
This series was so amazing to help me grasp the feel for the Revolutionary War.
Great series. Very much enjoyed it.
