Joyce Appleby -- "Inheriting the Revolution: The First Generation of Americans
The first generation of Americans — those born after 1776 — were different from the colonists that came before them. Shaped not only by the nation’s founding principles, they were also affected by increasingly global commerce, culture, and the growing diversity of the American people. Historian Joyce Appleby explores the lives of four early Americans and the profound differences between their world and that of their parents’ generation.
