Did I really want to read another book on the Revolutionary War? No. But did I enjoy this one? Heck yes! The story begins on the day of the Battle of Concord, just after the massacre at Lexington, with a teenaged boy named Elijah who volunteers to take his aging father's place alongside the Minute-Men, and is quickly swept into a full out war with Great Britain that will challenge he and his friends, Esek, Dodifer and Nicholas to their limits.

The book focuses mainly on the battles and the war
These are fun introduction stories to Americas Revolutionary War. Great for boys over 6 years of age maybe more like 8-12. We didn't finish as we moved. I would say you receive a more personal look at smaller battles that the young boys participate in.

Charles Carleton Coffin was an American journalist, Civil War correspondent, author and politician.

Coffin was one of the best-known newspaper correspondents of the American Civil War. He has been called "the Ernie Pyle of his era," and a biographer, W.E. Griffis, referred to him as "a soldier of the pen and knight of the truth." Yet he remains little known to the present day generation.
