Description

Most people have heard Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's famous poem, The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere. Many also know that this famous ride took place the night before the American Revolution began. But do you know about the events that led up to this important war in our nation's history? The British colonies fought for their independence from England for a number of reasons-including taxation without representation in England's Parliament. Within this book, you will learn exactly what drove the colonists to wage war against their mother country-and also what helped them gain important advantages even before war broke out.
