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.

Founded in 1865, by their 100th anniversary they were producing more than half of the blankets made in the United States each year.
