A Perspectives Flip Book
By Michael Burgan
People from Great Britain came to North America to start new lives in the 13 American colonies. In the beginning colonists accepted British rule without question. But by the mid-1700s, things were changing. Many colonists wanted the right to govern themselves. The British government felt as if the colonists were being ungrateful. By 1775 war between the two sides was inevitable.
Perspectives Flip Books are like two books in one: start from one end and immerse yourself in one viewpoint on a major historical event. Then flip it over and immerse yourself in another, very different viewpoint. Readers will come away with deeper understanding of events and history's many perspectives.
