Overview

British General Thomas Gage declared that the life of Joseph Warren was equal to 500 ordinary colonials. Contemporaries claimed that had Warren survived the American Revolution, the name of Washington might have been obscure. Dr. Joseph Warren was one of the foremost leaders in the years prior to, and the earliest months of the War for Independence. It was Warren who united the First Continental Congress. It was Joseph Warren who sent Paul Revere on his famous 'midnight' ride. It was Dr. Joseph Warren who acted as Commander in Chief to the army of rag-tag Provincial soldiers until an official appointment was made. His name and heroic deeds were once known by every school child in America - statues dedicated to him, towns, counties and streets named for him. Today his memory is all but forgotten, buried beneath the dust of time. Yet, were it not for Dr. Joseph Warren's prominent role, American History as we know it would be greatly altered.

Meet the Author

Janet Uhlar was born in Quincy, Massachusetts - the hometown of John Adams, John Quincy Adams, John Hancock, and Josiah Quincy, Jr. Her fascination with the American Revolution began in childhood upon reading Esther Forbes' Johnny Tremain. As a former home-schooling mom, Janet introduced forgotten heroes of the American Revolution to her children's history lessons, adding more depth and insight to this most pivotal time of our nation's history. Janet firmly believes that when the private lives and unique personalities of historical figures are presented, and the dynamics between these characters brought out, history becomes much more than cold black print on a stark white page. History takes on a life of its own, with true flesh and blood individuals whose acts of courage, indifference, or cowardice shaped the world we live in today. This living history helps us relate to those who have gone before - offering inspiration, courage, and a sense of determination. Janet lives on Cape Cod in Massachusetts.
