In this social history, Edward Countryman shows how interactions among America’s different ethnic groups have contributed to our sense of nationality. From the earliest settlements along the Atlantic seaboard to the battle over our nation’s destiny in the aftermath of the Civil War, Countryman reveals Americans in all their diverse complexity and shows why the very identity of “American”–forged by the African, the Indian, and the European alike–is what matters.
