about

Major events of the American Revolution are brought to life in this collection of historical fiction that shows young people caught up in the dangers, hardships, and conflicts of America's fight for independence. A young girl proves her courage in Concord on April 19, 1775, and a young boy and his dog catch a Tory spy after they cross the Delaware with Washington's men on Christmas night, 1776. Other stories show life during the siege of Charleston, a journey home in the middle of the battle of Saratoga, a young soldier's decision at Valley Forge, family conflicts in Savannah, an unlikely friendship at the surrender at Yorktown, and finally, a young boy witnessing the inauguration of President Washington. Brief introductions provide historical background for each of the fifteen stories. Sidebars, maps, and illustrations help make history alive and exciting. Also included are a timeline and suggestions for further reading.
