The New Nation


At the birth of the nation, citizens were forging a popular culture to call their own. People from all classes-farmers, merchants, and the educated wealthy-turned away from European culture and began to recognize America's own prodigies. This volume presents the nation's earliest art, architecture, fashions, entertainments, and hobbies, all of which would evolve into the uniquely American popular culture we recognize today.
