Burke Davis carefully researched this book which includes the biography of Crispus Attucks, a freeman who died in the Boston Massacre, and that was the beginning of the Revolutionary War-- but there are several other men and women I had never learned about, so here they are! The writing is clear and chapters short and engaging, there are letters, artwork, and text to support the chapters, and an extensive Further Reading section. Not only will this be interesting reading for students who love history, but also a great research source. Wonderful for 4th grade and above.… (more)
