Patriotic. Gutsy. Reckless. Groundbreaking. Revolutionary. All of these words—and more—describe the single most important event in our nation’s history: the American Revolution.

Find out what events led our young nation to go to war with Great Britain, and how the Declaration of Independence, the document that continues to shape our civil rights, came to be.

• Why did the colonists want independence from Great Britain?

• What brought on the Boston Tea Party?

• How did the Declaration of Independence initially impact women and slaves?

• What did Benjamin Franklin do to convince the French to join the revolution?

• How was George Washington chosen to lead the new young country?

• What elements of the Declaration of Independence continue to be debated today?

Packed with anecdotes, sidebars, quotes, and illustrations, A Kid’s Guide to the American Revolution brings vividly to life the birth of our nation.
