I have recently become a book worm and my favorites and some of the most interesting and informative books are history. More so than just history is American history. I had the idea of sharing a couple of awesome books I've read and possibly starting a thread and resource for others to find and share their favorites as well. So here we go: I picked Washingtons Crossing for the awesome detail of the actual war leading up to and after he crossed the Delaware and thought it was really cool to find out where 'Liberty or Death' and the Gadsden Flag came from among plenty others. And Liberty for for much of what day to day American life was like well before the crossing. And the details that lead to the confrontation with the other side of the pond.
