Item description for The Boys of '76: A History of the Battles of the Revolution by Charles Carleton Coffin...

WHEN THE WORLD WAS READY FOR IT, THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION burst on the scene with the declaration that all men were created by God free and equal and endowed with inalienable rights. With their trust in God and the righteousness of their cause, they challenged the greatest military power on earth and won, overturned the right of kings to rule, and turned the world upside down. Here is the story of the war that established our nation, so that freedom and liberty would one day become the heritage of all. Here is a record of the bravery of those who laid their all on the altar of sacrifice-- So you will know what our liberty has cost, and what it will take to keep it! HISTORICALLY ACURATE statements and actions of Revolutionary War participants give the reader a faithful account of the battles. The different destinies of the four fictional characters give the story an urgency that keeps young readers interested Coffin's Christian perspective and moral observations are what most notably set this history apart from the contemporary version. Coffin heard all these stories first hand when he was a boy from the people who were there! The Boys of 76' is a masterfully written and important account of the sacrifice, faith and courage it took to make America a free and independent nation. Beautifully illustrated with ninety-three antique engravings.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Boys of '76: A History of the Battles of the Revolution?

Reprint of wonderful old book  Sep 4, 2008
Although I love reading histories, I confess that the American Revolution never fully captured my interest and I am not very familiar with the fine modern literature on this subject. However, as a teen I came across a tattered but still readable copy of this in its 1876 first edition from Harper & Bros., a centennial tribute to its subject matter. I devoured it, spending much time staring at the fine pen and ink illustrations. As the title suggests, it is a descriptive chronology of the battles of the Revolution, and its slightly outmoded style somehow seems entirely fitting. It is full of evocative detail that brought the various campaigns to life for me. This, from the chapter on Saratoga: "And a grand supper General Burgoyne gave to his officers. The wife of one of the officers of the commisary department, who was no better than she should be, sat by his side at the table, and drank Champagne with him, and the officers clinked their glasses, and laughed and sung songs, while the poor wounded soldiers were lying half starved under the trees and fences, and the good Madame Reidesel was making them broth."

No doubt there are fuller, more modern treatments of the subject. But for sheer pleasure I can still recommend Coffin's history without reservation.
