The American Promise, Volume I: To 1877: A History of the United States offers a lively and engaging approach to the past. It has hundreds of illustrations and maps to accompany the interesting narratives. Authors James L. Roark, Michael P. Johnson, Patricia Cline Cohen, Sarah Stage, and Susan M. Hartmann manage to cover all the important events in history, starting with ancient America and then moving on to Europeans encountering the new world, the southern colonies in the 17th century, the northern colonies in the 17th century, colonial America in the 18th century, and the British empire and the colonial crisis. This textbook also covers the war of America, George Washington seeking congressional support for the continental army, Boston King seeking freedom by running away to the British army, and Joseph Brant appealing to the British allies. Topics such as building a republic, the new nation taking form, Republicans in power, the expanding republic, the free north, and the slave north are also discussed. The last part of The American Promise, Volume I: To 1877: A History of the United States (ISBN 9780312452926) focuses on the crucible war and the reconstruction of the country. All the authors – James L. Roark, Michael P. Johnson, Patricia Cline Cohen, Sarah Stage, and Susan M. Hartmann – teach history in prestigious universities and have written, co-authored, and edited top-selling history books. Students can easily learn history at their own pace with the help of the online supplement. Instructors also have access to helpful resources, including a test bank and a lecture kit.
