Great History  Dec 12, 2007

nice little book  Feb 10, 2007

The Worst Ever!!!!!!!!!  Feb 5, 2006
I thought this book was the worst book ever. It was so boring! Did I mention that it was the WORST BOOK EVER!!!! It was the worst book in the history of bad books. You should never read it. Take my word on that. Oh, and I didn't just choose to read it on my own. A teacher forced me to read the dumb novel. IT'S THE WORST BOOK EVER!!!!!!!
 
Nick's Review on the greatbook!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Feb 10, 2005
In the cold winter of1775, the American troops were stuck without ammunition, cannons or guns. So the American troops set out to look for left over guns in Ticonderoga. They had to go through lots of trouble to get there! The British had tons of weapons, so they were ready!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read this book to see if the American soldiers survive the long trip to Ticonderoga.

In Guns For General Washington the book takes place in 1775(in Boston). It's very cold outside and it is old in Ticonderoga. Paul Revere is 15 years old. Paul's parents move, but Paul decides to stay and keep the house protected.


I give this book a five star ratting because it is very cool and it has lots of description! I would recommend this book to anyone that likes to know about wars and likes action!
