Becoming a Reader: 1776

1776If you don't believe that Providence had a hand in bringing America its freedom and independence, read 1776.  I really enjoy American history, especially at the Founding, but I learned so many new things from this book.  Seriously, HOW IN THE WORLD DID WE WIN THE WAR?  Our army didn't have the funding, training, or size of the British, but we beat 'em!  It's truly incredible.  I have always greatly admired George Washington, and this book made me appreciate him even more.  I liked how it showed his great moments as well as his poor decisions.  It made him more real which makes him even more admirable.  Here's a good synopsis of the whole thing:
P.S. Shout out to all things School House Rock.  I have remembered the lyrics to these songs during tests and assignments throughout school, even in college.
