From Our Editors

John Adams spoke so eloquently for independence in 1776-- and Congress voted to sign on the famous Declaration. Peter Stone and Sherman Edwards turned this monumental period into nothing less than a full-scale musical -- Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and all! -- one that received five Tony Awards in 1969. The dramatic recreation of those key days of 1776 is a joyous tribute to the greatest moment in American history and is now available in this jubilantly written text.
