“Lively study of the main players of the two Continental Congresses.... Beeman elegantly moves through the deeply compelling process of how these motley characters fashioned government as an agency for the people. A welcome addition to a rich, indispensable field of scholarly study.”
—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

“The biggest accomplishment in all of American politics was the first. Richard Beeman tells the intricate, grinding, suspenseful story of how thirteen contentious colonies agreed to leave an empire and form a nation.”
—Richard Brookhiser, author of James Madison

“With a dazzling combination of effortless prose and impeccable research, Richard Beeman has given us a fresh understanding of how thirteen very different—and often differing —colonies became a nation.”
—Thomas Fleming, author of Liberty!: The American Revolution

“An eloquent scholar and insightful analyst, Richard Beeman has written a powerful and vivid account of the making of what is arguably our most cited and least understood founding document: the Declaration of Independence. This is a valuable and important book.”
—Jon Meacham, author of Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power and American Lion

“A solid and lucid account of the momentous years leading up to the Revolution by one of early America’s expert historians. Indeed, the story of those two years 1774-1776 has never been better told.”
—Gordon Wood, Professor of History Emeritus at Brown University

“An engaging history of the Founders of 1776.”
—Booklist

“Full of fascinating details.”
—Publishers Weekly
