How America became unique

This is a fascinating account of how the early Colonists tried so hard to remain English that they tried to imitate England in everything. But by being so far from the confines of English schools and training, they became a uniquely new nation. From education to medicine to law; from newspapers to books to war; they adapted from what they were lacking from into something greater then what they were trying to imitate.
