"Life in colonial America was often a struggle for survival and a constant lesson in adaptation. The early years of colonization, fraught with disease, starvation, and conflict with Native Americans, led to the development of regional communities in the form of agricultural plantations in the South and industrial port cities in the Northeast. The era culminated in the signing of the Declaration of Independence and hard-earned victory over Great Britain in the Revolutionary War. Characterized by religious and political fervor, this tumultuous time in American history established not only the nation's independence but its national identity as well."--p.[4] of cover.
