I loved this book! There was so much history that I didn’t know before. Some parts were even a little funny to keep you interested! The perfect combination. This book teaches you about the Marquise de Lafayette, the legend of Molly Pitcher, the Culper Spy Ring & so many more facts you wouldn’t find anywhere else. I recommend this book for people interested in the American Revolution or just interested in being smarter than their teachers! I love this book! For age 8 and up.
