Written from a particular political viewpoint but still interesting. The author left out perhaps the biggest influence on the country, the writer of Common Sense, Thomas Paine. Without this book the average man and woman would not have supported a revolution but Mr Paine was an atheist. Is that why he is ignored? Also, "God" was not the same concept for many of these men that we think of today. Like any history book one needs to use it with others and be careful of the political bend of the author.
