Part of the Days of Change series
There are days that make history, and then there are days that shape the world. The Days of Change series examines events that caused—and, in some cases, continue to cause—enormous global change. Each book examines how the pivotal days unfolded and surveys the world both pre- and post-event, while striking historical photographs and illustrations capture the drama and powerful emotions of the Declaration of American Independence and other unforgettable happenings.
