11 Year Old Homeschooler Wrote This Review Nov 18, 2004
"The Minute Boys of Lexington" is about a 16-year-old boy of the Revolution. Roger lives with his mother, sister, and a beloved helping hand named Hen. The story begins when Roger, returning home with a wagon load of corn fodder, is commanded to pull over to the side of the road by a detachment of Redcoats. He does not obey there orders (for fear of the cart turning over and spilling all the feed) so he is captured. Now his journey really begins. This is a very nice book; I liked it so much that I read it in under a week.Edward Stratmeyer, the author, is a very good writer. I believe he is trying to show in this book how valiantly the minutemen of the Revolution fought for our rights that we now enjoy today.
Exciting history! Nov 20, 2001
Well written, exciting tale of the beginnings of the American Revolution. A must-read for every young history nut in your house! My 10-year old son couldn't put it down and was heard to exclaim several times, "This is GREAT history!" The author makes the places, names, and dates of history come alive and helps young people appreciate the human side of what they are studying in school. Comprehensive glossary at the end helps explain difficult words. This book was an excellent addition to my homeschool history curriculum. Now it's on to "The Minute Boys of Bunker Hill".
