Did you know that when America was founded one out of every five people was a slave? Or that Susan B. Anthony was arrested for trying to vote? Or that 15-year-old Claudette Colvin refused to give up her seat on a city bus nine months before Rosa Parks did? It’s true!

When Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, he declared that all men should be created equal and everyone should have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It was an incredible idea, one that led to the founding of our country—but when Jefferson wrote it, there were lots of people who weren’t considered equal and weren’t free to pursue happiness.

In this kid-friendly, fact-filled book, young readers will find out how Americans fought for—and won!—their freedoms.
