Description
This journalistic history of the young United States chronicles the story of the Revolutionary War in the form of more than 100 vignettes depicting soldiers and civilians, loyalists and patriots, leaders and common folk. It portrays Thomas Jefferson's painful discomfort as the Continental Congress made changes to his Declaration of Independence; two rogue warriors on opposite sides who each thought nothing of murder, arson, and kidnapping as a means to victory during the conflict; Henry Knox's gritty effort to drag a large number of cannons from Fort Ticonderoga to Boston; and George Washington's embarrassment and fury in dealing with Benedict Arnold's young wife—hysterical and scantily clad—on the day Arnold deserted the American cause.

"The book's content belies its perky title. It is clear that the authors have sifted an impressive number of respected historical works on the Revolutionary period to obtain their 'best little stories.' Their presentation of these tales strikes an admirable balance between entertainment and serious history."—Roanoke Times
