The American Revolutionby Lisa Frederiksen Bohannon
On the morning of April 19, 1775, British troops and American militiamen clashed in the small Massachusetts town of Lexington. This deadly incident was the spark that ignited the powder keg of revolution, as a decade of disputes between Britain and its American colonies exploded into armed conflict. One year later, American Patriot leaders declared their independence from Great Britain. But it would take a long and costly war for the new United States to earn its freedom. This volume in the Chronicle of America's Wars series follows the American Revolution from its origins to its improbable Patriot victory, covering major battles and profiling the key characters in this conflict that changed America and the world.
