Summary This volume invites readers to explore the colonial history of Delaware, the first state to join the United States. Readers will learn how Delaware switched hands between the Swedish and Dutch before falling under British rule. The text explores Delaware s rise to success as a coastal trading and manufacturing center, as well as the early rumblings of dissent with English Parliament. Students will gain an understanding of Delaware s role in the American Revolution and its long-awaited break from Pennsylvania to become its own colony-state, and eventually, its own state. This text, which is engaging and vivid, aligns with state and national social studies curricula. Primary sources, artwork, and maps supplement the text to support comprehension of major events and historical figures in Delaware s colorful history.
