The Colony of Pennsylvania
Spotlight on the 13 Colonies: Birth of a Nation
This volume invites readers to step back in time to colonial Pennsylvania, in whose storied history we can find the origins of the United States. This comprehensive look at Pennsylvania's colonial era covers its Quaker origins, early industry, its unique social and religious climate, and the role it played in America's most important revolutionary events. Readers will learn about key historical figures, such as William Penn and Benjamin Franklin, as well as monumental historical events that took place in Pennsylvania, including the meeting of the First and Second Continental Congresses, the signing of the Declaration of Independence, and more. Primary sources, maps, and period-specific artwork transport readers back in time to the second state's legendary colonial history.
