LearnOutLoud.com Review

In this lecture from the Cambridge Forum David McCullough delivers anecdotes from his bestselling American history work "1776". McCullough expresses how remarkable of a story this year in American history was and draws us in with details from the comprehensive research he conducted on this era. At the end of the lecture he answers a number of questions from the audience.


Description

Bestselling historical writer and two-time Pulitzer winner David McCullough follows up his biography John Adams by focusing on an historic time rather than an individual: the momentous 12 months in the fight for independence. 1776 describes how a group of ragtag farmers were able to defeat the world's greatest empire with a great deal of suffering, determination, ingenuity, and, as McCullough notes, luck.
