Historic America: Mid-Atlantic (Historic America Series) by Jim Kaplan


pdf epub fb2 djvu



The story of America's Mid-Atlantic region is a fascinating tale that interweaves the hope of those who crossed the oceans to start new lives with the grief of those who lost sons and brothers on the fields of Antietam and Gettysburg. The Amish of Pennsylvania and Maryland's crab fishermen take their place in these pages alongside those who pioneered the great railroads and canals, built the nation's capital, and made their unique contributions to the incomparable metropolis fondly known as the Big Apple. Over 100 photographs and illustrations are featured.
