    American historian Joseph Ellis tells an old story in a new way. The summer of 1776 witnessed the most consequential events in the story of our country's founding. While the thirteen colonies came together and agreed to secede from the British Empire, the British were dispatching the largest armada ever to cross the Atlantic to crush the rebellion in the cradle. The Continental Congress and the Continental Army were forced to make decisions on the run. Ellis examines the most influential figures in this moment, and weaves together the political and military experiences as two sides of a single story, showing how events on one front influenced outcomes on the other.--Excerpted from publisher description.
