On the United States’ birthday, we bring back Bob’s conversation with Pulitzer Prize winning historian David McCullough about 1776, his book on the American Revolution. It’s written as a companion work to John Adams, his celebrated biography of the second president, and includes research from hundreds of letters and several diaries kept by people on both sides of the conflict.
Then, on this quintessentially American day, we pay homage to the setting for so many 4th of July parades and cookouts, home. That’s the topic explored by Steve Winick and Nancy Groce of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. [Broadcast Date: July 4, 2014]
