Before the famous American Revolution, the United States only existed as thirteen colonies. They were all in the Eastern part of the country and all of them were still ruled by England. The colony of Williamsburg, Virginia became one of the most prosperous of these thirteen colonies due to it's mild southern weather and rich soil. This book depicts a slice of life during the early 1770's. With a simple question and answer format, readers can peer into this busy colony outpost and see what kind of people lived there, what they did for a living, and what their customs were. Take a look!
