By Lynn Montross

This book is in good condition. There is little wear on the front, back, edges, and spine of the book. There is some bumping and fraying on the cover boards. The pages are yellowing and tanning, but the pages are clear of markings. "The temperature at Philadelphia was exactly 70 degrees at six o'clock on the morning of July 2, 1776. During the next three hours it rose eight degrees, and the afternoon had turned hot and humid when the delegates gathered again in the State House. These statistics were noted by a tall, redheaded Virginian who took readings thrice daily with the new thermometer he had purchased at a cost of three pounds and fifteen shillings. Thomas Jefferson also remembered to the end of his long life the bothersome horseflies which buzzed through the open windows from a near by livery stable and hastened a vote on the issue: Resolved, That these United Colonies are, and, of right, ought to be, Free and Independent States; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British crown, and that all political connection between them, and the state of Great Britain, is, and ought to be, totally dissolved...." - Chapter One from The Reluctant Rebels

"No man is an island, particularly when he is trailblazing through territory new to him and most particularly when he attempts to produce a work of this extent. Space does not permit me to acknowledge all the help and advice I received from numerous historical societies and their members who were in touch with me at one time or another during preparation and writing of this book. A few names, I confess, I neglected to record or lost along the way. I am thinking particularly of the Francis Marion National Forest ranger who took us to the site of the Wambaw fight and the gentlemen at the courthouse in Calhoun County, South Carolina, who finally put us on the right track to Fort Motte. To you and to others who I may have neglected to mention, my sincere apologies...." - Acknowledgements (for all three volumes of the Guide) from The Bicentennial Guide to the American Revolution This is a three book set and may require additional postage.

The wind was south-east and the mercury rose to 76 in the heat of the day, which was not at all bad for the season.Forty or fifty representatives from what had been called provinces or colonies, from New Hampshire to Georgia, had been meeting for some time in Pennsylvania's brick State House - later to be known as Independence Hall - and on this day their debates did not end till evening." - Prologue "in Congress, July 4th 1776, The Story Of The Declaration Of Independence
