What makes this a great book is that the stories of each hero are quite short. If you will be reading it to students the stories make both great read aloud and shared reading texts. Adler attempts to include stories from people other than just the white male heroes. Throughout the book you not only learn about what made each person important but each story tells the origin of famous quotes associated with the Revolution. You will hear the origin of such famous quotes as: "I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country," "Times that try men's souls," "I have not yet begun to fight!"
