Life During the American Revolution
What You Didn't Know About History
The American Revolution was full of odd events not usually included in history books. Some of these events include: the tar and feathering of British supporters and battles taking place in farmers' fields. Readers will find many new--and sometimes funny--facts in this book, such as patriot soldiers leaving the war to harvest their crops. Surprising fact boxes and distinctive historical information engage readers with a unique look at the Revolutionary War. Detailed illustrations further emphasize that whether colonists were for, against, or indifferent about independence, war affected them all.
