Quotes & Awards

  • “As with all of the books in this series, the Colliers have done a masterful job of recounting some of the most important times in our country’s history. This book begins after the Constitution has been written and the United States has begun its quest for freedom. It chronicles the omissions within that document and how, through both cooperation and strife, these holes were somewhat mended. It was this strife that helped convince George Washington that he should only serve two terms. He preferred spending time on his farm to time with the warring Republicans and Federalists. Excellent period artistry and straightforward text allow the reader to understand the importance of this period. Instructors will easily integrate this book into the curriculum at the intermediate and older levels, thus making history come to life for these students. Part of the ‘The Drama of American History’ series.”
