    Becoming Americans: Our Struggle to Be Both Free and Equal-A Plan of Thematic Interpretation
    Cary Carson, Editor
    Visitors are fascinated by the authenticity of the historic interpretations at Colonial Williamsburg. This book is a synthesis of the scholarship on which those interpretations are based. It explains how diverse groups of people, holding different and sometimes conflicting personal ambitions, evolved into a society that valued both liberty and equality. Americans still cherish these values as their birthright, even when their promise remains unfulfilled. The introductory essay and the 5 thematic story-line essays-"Taking Possession," "Enslaving Virginia," "Buying Respectability," "Choosing Revolution," and "Freeing Religion"-explore the history behind the critical challenges that divide American society and the historic forces that simultaneously unite it. Softbound, 206 pages, 78 color and 38 black and white illustrations.
