Reviews - What do customers think about Great Stories of the American Revolution: Unusual, Interesting Stories of the Exhilirating Era when a Nation was Born?

Light Reading and Enjoyable  Feb 13, 2000
If you're looking for an interesting and fast reading book on the Revolutionary War, you may want to pick up this as a starter. The chapters are short and provide quite a bit of information about the principal characters. I did find, however, two errors of minor consequence. One has John Adams buried in the Garnary Burying Ground in downtown Boston, when it is Sam Adams who is buried there. The other error, I believe, is made when the author quotes Colonel William Prescott as the author of the line, "Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes" at the Battle of Bunker Hill. Other sources attribute this line to Israel Putnam, who supposedly was quoting a Prussian prince from 30 years earlier. In any case I found this to be an enjoyable book and I suggest it to anyone who finds this war to be interesting reading.
