Product Description

In a pathbreaking historical work that revolutionizes our understanding of the Declaration of Independence, Pauline Maier strips away the accumulated misconceptions, misplaced reverence, and hero worship that have long surrounded this epoch-making document. Drawing upon dozzens of other "declarations of independence" written by towns, counties and states in the spring and summer of 1776, Maier reveals the popular origins of American nationhood.
