Story of the American Revolution

The Revolutionary War birthed our nation, and this exciting series goes beyond the textbook to share the complete, fascinating history of this important war. Each book presents a specific topic and explains it in an interesting, lively manner-these books are anything but boring! Colorful illustrations, maps, timelines, charts, and information boxes accompany the readable text. What makes these books so interesting is how they delve into people, places, and events that history courses barely mention (if at all!) For instance, Great Women of the American Revolution includes not only the contributions of well-known heroines such as Phyllis Wheatley, Abigail Adams, and Molly Pitcher; but also lesser-known women such as Elizabeth Burgin, Emily Geiger, and Lydia Darragh. Vocabulary words appear in red and are keyed to glossary footnotes at the bottom of the page. The back of the book contains a glossary, index, list of internet sites, and further resources. 32 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa
