Overview

The founding of the United States may be the single greatest event in the history of the rise and fall of nations. Thirteen infant colonies challenged the mightiest military power on earth and won! The victory of the underfunded, ill-equipped, and inadequately-trained colonists was made possible by the heroic efforts of the patriots, some of whom have been memorialized, but others whose names are not even known. In Unlikely Heroes, Ron Carter brings these forgotten individuals and courageous deeds to light in twenty-six true stories. From a teenaged girl, to an unnamed American sailor, to a woman who enlisted in the Continental Army disguised as a man, these largely unheralded individuals did what they had to do in critical moments and helped secure the victory.
