Happy Independence Day from Cosimo

Today is the Fourth of July, the day the United States became independent from Britain. In celebration of the Declaration of Independence, our Founding Fathers, and the struggles and bravery of those who came before us, Cosimo is highlighting some great titles about this holiday. In between fireworks, cookouts, family reunions, and baseball games, relax with one of these great books.

The Works of Thomas Jefferson, Vol. II by Thomas Jefferson

The works in this volume take place during the years 1771 to 1779, which include the drafts of numerous bills, correspondence to George Washington, notes on rules for the Continental Congress, as well as many drafts of the Declaration of Independence.

Presented in this book are the three founding documents of the United States and another that altered and divided the Union for a brief moment in history: The Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, United States Constitution, and Constitution of the Confederate States. Together, these four documents offer a firsthand perspective on the political history of the United States.

John Adams, Vol.1 by John Quincy Adams

One of the most complete biographies ever written about an American president, this is a remarkable effort examining the life and career of the great Revolutionary leader and the second man to take the oath of office, John Adams. This volume covers everything from Adams's school days up to his landmark term in the Congress of 1774 straight through to the advent of the Declaration of Independence.

The Federalist Papers by Alexander Hamilton

The Federalist papers -- 85 essays written by Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and James Madison in support of the adoption of the U.S. Constitution -- began appearing in New York newspapers beginning in the autumn of 1787. As masterful examinations of the fundamental principals of the U.S. system of government, they are unrivaled -- as works of political philosophy, they have moved and influenced peoples and nations around the world in their battles toward freedom and democracy. This edition also includes The Articles of Confederation of the United States, and The Declaration of Independence.
