Summary
The Magna Carta was an astonishing document in its time. As the first document to limit the power of the British monarchy, it also protected the rights of the individual. The Magna Carta's impact reverberated throughout history and was on the minds of the American colonists as they prepared to fight England. They believed that their rights, established by the Magna Carta, had been stripped from them by their mother country. This book explains what was happening in England in 1215 when the Magna Carta was forced into the hands of King John. Readers will come to understand how the Magna Carta is still relevant to our nation and world.
