Editorial Reviews

George Grant
The Minute Boys of Bunker Hill finds young Roger and his friends in the thick of the action again, this time just adjacent to Boston at the Battle of Bunker HIll. The awful specter of the battlefield, the hazards of prison, and the deprivations of the home front cannot deter him and his young friends from their patriotic duty. Once again, he stands side-by-side with some of the greatest men of his day, including Samuel Adams, Joseph Warren, and William Prescott.

Including reproductions of original illustrations, helpful glossaries, crisp typesetting, sturdy bindings, and clean design, these books are a part of an impressive enterprise launched by the Lost Classics Book Company to reurrect the ideas and values of an earlier, more enduring American civilization. -- World Magazine

Read an Excerpt

But these patriots had two things in their favor. Those who could shoot at all could shoot well, and every one of them was used to untold hardships and to facing perils such as were new to the well housed and well fed soldiers of King George III, sent over to subdue them. They were willing to fight until the last ditch and until the last charge of powder was used; nay, they proved, later on, that they could fight even after the last ditch was passed and the powder horn had long since been drained. "They did not understand when they were whipped," so one English writer expressed it—for the simple reason that they never considered the battle at an end so long as victory was not upon their side.
