The Real Story Behind the Thirteen Colonies
There has always been controversy over the settlement of America. American students have been taught that Columbus discovered America, yet what he found was neither America, nor was it undiscovered. In modern times, students have vast amounts of information available to them, however it is not always obvious which sources are reliable. This book explains the establishment of the thirteen colonies through the eyes of the colonists, Native Americans, African slaves, and the British Empire. Readers will learn that religious freedom wasn't the only reason colonists flocked to the New World. Sidebars with interesting details will help students navigate through the colonization of America with fresh perspective, while encouraging them to use multiple resources to gain informed opinions about historical topics.
