It slowly takes readers during and after the revolution, with accounts of the revolution, including famous and never-before heard quotations by eminent leaders. It vividly paints a picture of how the American Patriots united together and made contributions to establish America.

Aiming to provide answers to questions regarding the US history and its first president, George Washington and the American Revolution captures the dramatic structure of the American Colonial days and gives tribute to one of the most remarkable men of the said era.
