What they did not teach me about the American Revolution was 'alot'. In this day and age of students not fully appreciating our own history this book is a must. Acadamia may not support this book however, I found it to be enjoyable, entertaining and very informative. Does everyone know that Georage Washington grew marijuana but may not have smoked it or even inhaled it. This one of many untaught lessons of our founding fore fathers.
