Be transported to Williamsburg in the days of the Revolution! See the city at war through the eyes of its residents for an exciting new perspective on the historic year of 1776. The latest in the popular "New Look" line of history titles, it goes beyond the story of the founding fathers to give a close-up look at how the war for independence played out for ordinary citizens like women, blacksmiths, and slaves.
Scenes from around the city include a milliner forced to pack up shop, children at a play in a courtyard next to soldiers on patrol, and slaves wrenched from family and friends as they leave town with their Loyalist masters.
K. M. Kostyal has written a number of books for the National Geographic Society including Trial by Ice: A Photobiography of Sir Ernest Shackleton. Kostyal is a history buff with a fascination for the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. She lives in Washington, D.C.
