Summary

Life in colonial America was often a struggle for survival and a constant lesson in adaptation. The early years of colonization—fraught with disease, starvation, and conflict with Native Americans—progressed to the development of regional communities in the form of agricultural plantations in the South and industrial port cities in the Northeast. The legalization of slavery and the signing of the Declaration of Independence were among many of the significant events of this period. Characterized by religious and political fervor, this tumultuous time in modern American history established many of the standards by which we live and govern today.

The Colonial and Revolutionary Era, Revised Edition delves into the way ordinary Americans lived, covering everything from the foods people ate to how they dressed and popular pastimes.
