Description: The author of the acclaimed What They Didn't Teach You series tackles his most difficult and rewarding subject to date: the American Revolution. It is so long ago that no one alive has personal recollections of that time, Our individual recollections of even the key events and personalities are pretty hazy. After all, the Revolution was covered pretty early in the first semester of the American history survey courses we all had to survive on the academic road to diplomas or degrees. Yet, the American Revolution is the defining event not for a decade, not for a generation, not even for a century: it is the defining event in the history of our country.

Among the topics examined in author Wright's sometime irreverent look back are: what made the founding fathers so great (Or were they?): how about a few words for the founding mothers: and spies from Nathan Hale to Benedict Arnold, with enlightening stops on the distaff side for Patience Wright (no relation to our esteemed author). Lydia Darragh, and Ann Bates.

Did you know? -- That John Adams was a Harvard man whereas George Washington's classroom education ended after a few years of elementary school. -- That more American revolutionary soldiers died as POW's than were killed in battle. -- That the first use of dental records, to identify a corpse was when Paul Revere identified the body of Joseph Warren, a patriot leader killed at the Battle of Blinker Hill. As in his previous books on the Civil War and World War II, author Mike Wright breathes life into our nation's history while spotlighting many little known stories from the American Revolution, always with a fine eye for the human element.
