The American Revolution, 1760-1783 (Landmark Books)by Bruce Bliven
Synopses & Reviews
In the American colonies of the 1770s, people were fed up with British laws. Local farmers and tradesmen secretly formed a militia. In 1775, when the British marched into Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts, the Americans were ready. From that first battle to the final showdown at Yorktown, the Americans fought against tremendous odds. The British army was bigger and better trained. Food and guns were scarce. But George Washingtons ragged army fought for-and won-the freedom and independence we cherish to this day.Illustrated with black-and-white photographs, the tale of our country's fight for independence is brought to life in fast-moving, dramatic detail.
From the unruly Boston Tea Party to the decisive Battle of Yorktown, the tale of our country's fight for independence is brought to life in fast-moving, dramatic detail. B&W photos.
