Publisher's Summary

A fierce group of rebels who will never surrender.

An empire with an army that has never known defeat.

And a war that changed the world forever.

From George Washington crossing the icy Delaware to Molly Pitcher fearlessly firing her cannon, the people of the American Revolution were some of the bravest and most inspiring of all time. Jump into a riot in the streets of Boston, join the Culper Spy Ring as they steal secrets in the dead of night, and watch the signing of the Declaration of Independence in this accessible guide to the birth of the United States.

History buff and popular blogger Ben Thompson's extensive research and irresistible storytelling make history come alive in this fourth book in the unforgettable Guts & Glory series!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"The strength here, as in others in the series, is the lively storytelling style...lovers of Hamilton: An American Musical will enjoy the information and breezy tone." ( Kirkus Reviews)

Engaging history story

My 9yo history loving son really enjoyed this audiobook. I personally disliked some of the slang and informal language but overall, it was engaging and educational.
