Synopsis

An entertaining, captivating and completely digestible revolutionary war history book.

Sheinkin, formerly a textbook writer, collected stories: good, funny, amazing, inspiring, surprising, and disgustingly true stories. He has succeeded in writing an entertaining, captivating and completely digestible revolutionary war history book.   I laughed aloud when reading, ” Dawes and Revere (Paul) had a quick snack (you have to eat, even in the middle of famous historical events), Captain John Parker got the Lexington minutemen together on the town common.”  A snack amidst the start of The American Revolution?  I just don’t think of historical figures being concerned with eating.   I highly recommend this book.
