Summary

For more than 200 years, since the ratification of the U.S. Constitution in 1788, the government, courts, and people of the United States have been shaped by the words in that document. To understand how the United States came together as a nation, students must first acquaint themselves with the original 13 colonies, and how each of the original colonies followed its own path to the ratification of the Constitution. The Thirteen Colonies set conveys the excitement of these stories to young people. Beginning with a brief introduction that discusses some of the broad reasons why Europeans came to the New World, both as explorers and settlers, each book's compelling narrative highlights the people, places, and events that were important to the development of each colony. Each volume also includes photographs, maps, sidebars, a timeline, an appendix of sites in the state, a further reading list, and an index.

Each volume in the set covers the following:

  • A description of the American Indian peoples who lived in the area that would become each colony
  • Early explorers of eastern North America
  • The first European colonial settlements and life in the early colonies
  • Conflicts between the colonists and American Indians
  • Increasing tensions between the colonies and England as England attempted to assert control over the colonies
  • The battles and events of the Revolutionary War
  • Each colony’s role in the creation and ratification of the U.S. Constitution.
