Time Travel and Independence Day
But what about July 5th?
Sure, today we wake up with the fiery sounds of national unity still reverberating through our heads. But what must have rang through the minds of those that awoke on July 5th, 1776, in the midst of another hot, humid Philadelphia summer?
History, traveling back to a different place in time, is a curiosity for The Traveler - reviewing the past, always looking for clues in what - just occasionally - seems like a clueless world.
The following books are selections The Traveler has recently found interesting in his desire to learn more about our American history:
Adams Vs. Jefferson: The Tumultuous Election of 1800 (Pivotal Moments in American History)
His Excellency : George Washington (Vintage)
