With a new introduction by David McCullough, 1776: The Illustrated Edition brings 140 powerful images and thirty-seven removable replicas of source documents to this remarkable drama.

In 1776, David McCullough’s bestselling account of a pivotal year in our nation’s struggle, readers learned of the greatest defeats, providential fortune, and courageous triumphs of George Washington and his bedraggled army. Now, in1776: The Illustrated Edition, the efforts of the Continental Army are made even more personal, as an excerpted version of the original book is paired with letters, maps, and seminal artwork. More than three dozen source documents—including a personal letter George Washington penned to Martha about his commission, a note informing the mother of a Continental soldier that her son has been taken prisoner, and a petition signed by Loyalists pledging their allegiance to the King—are re-created in uniquely designed envelopes throughout the book and secured with the congressional seal.

Both a distinctive art book and a collectible archive, 1776: The Illustrated Edition combines a treasury of eighteenth-century paintings, sketches, documents, and maps with storytelling by our nation’s preeminent historian to tell the story of 1776 as never before.

  • My only regret is not acquiring this book earlier!
    Verified Purchase

    I loved the full-length version of McCullough's 1776 and only wish I knew of, and purchased, this abridged and graphical version as a companion book. It would've made the initial read so much more meaningful. I plan to read the books again together.

  • 1776 The Illustrated Edition
    Verified Purchase

    I was very pleased with the book that I ordered. I gave it as a Christmas present to a person who is a history buff. I saw it reviewed in the newspaper as a great new gift item, and thought it was a little too expensive for my purse. When I looked it up on your website, and found it to be half the price, I immediately ordered it. Thanks. What a great find!!
