Anyway I saw this group and thought it might be interesting. I'm into American history, mainly pre-1900 but other than that I'm not too specific. Oh and I'm not American I'm British (sorry!) hope that's ok!
I've just finished reading 1776 by David McCullough which I thought was an excellent book, though far too short. Can anyone recommend a good book about the American Revolution that either covers the whole of it, or maybe takes it up where McCullough ends?
Thanks, and hope to get involved in some discussions on here soon.
The book begins with events starting with the French and Indian War through the election of Jefferson in 1800. Not only does Ferling provide the significant events/individuals during this period of time, Ferling also provides astute analysis and critical information in support of the events/individuals.
In the past two years I have been on a Revolutionary War era reading surge...reading 17 books. This book and author John Ferling are two of my favorites.
I have found it very helpful to know what the politics were in England which led to the revolution, and to the way it progressed.

There's the American History thread, also.
