Dennis Brindell Fradin tells the story of Paul Revere, how he discovered the British were coming, how he spread the news, and how the first two Battles of the American Revolutionary War followed. This nonfiction story about the Revolutionary War talks about how the war was a reminder to the American colonists that independence was going to require a fight and how the war was a reminder to Britain that the American colonists were serious about their independence. Fradin outlines what happened right before and during those first two battles in Lexington and Concord.
The book also includes various maps and illustrations to further supplement and enhance the reading for children or students.
