Stories of Eleven Revolutionary War Children

Book - 2004
Rate this:
When Americans think about the American Revolution, certain names come quickly to mind--George Washington, Paul Revere, and Samuel Adams. These men deserve to be remembered, yet their stories do not give us a clear picture of what life was like for the average person during the years before, during, and immediately after the war. Typical history books do not describe how a nine-year-old Massachusetts boy might have felt when his friend was killed in the Boston Massacre or what went through the mind of a teenage Quaker girl when her family fled Philadelphia. These are the kinds of stories you will find in this book. Many of these children not only survived the war but played an active role in it.
