it was amazing
Read in March, 2009

Loved this book! I love US history and this book makes me realize either I slept through all history classes I ever took or my teachers gave super abbreviated versions of actual events. It took me longer than usual to read this book because I kept going back and rereading things and looking at maps trying to figure out exactly where these things were happening. I have a new found respect for all the men who seved in Washington's army. And especially for George Washington himself. This book really shows how the darkest of times can bring out true heros!!

Roxy I gave this one a five-star rating also. I found myself amazed by the shared history we have as Americans. McCullough writes so intelligently, I felt smarter after reading his work.

Melissa Roxy - I read the comments between you and Karyn about his book and author. I have to admit that I have yet to read his work even though I LOVE US HISTORY. I am making this my next book to read. It will be nice to read from someone that is good enough to run for President:)
