From Earth to Moon by Jules Verne

Jules Verne is generally considered the founder of modern science fiction, and this book does not disappoint. After the end of the American Revolution, the Yankee artillerists have nothing to do. Then the president of the Gun Club suggests they build a projectile to get to the moon. This book follows the adventures of creating this projectile, as well as the result of launching it. A fun, fast read that’s a great today as it was in the 19th Century.
