Description

Delaware describes life in the early colony, including the growth of the colony under William Penn and the Quakers, the success of farming and milling, and the diversity of the population. It discusses early explorers, the growth of European nation-states, and the American Indian civilizations that existed before the Europeans arrived, as well as early exploration in Delaware, and the settlements of the Dutch and Swedish. This lively volume ends with coverage of the battles and events of the Revolutionary War, such as the Battle of Lexington and Concord and the Battle of the Brandywine, and with Delaware's important role in forming the federal constitution and its place as ""The First State"" to ratify it.
