The year is 1775. America is a grand experiment. Colonists are writing anonymous pamphlets about their hopes for this new country. British redcoats walk the streets. Enslaved African American women and men work on tobacco and sugar plantations. A young lawyer named Patrick Henry sings out in a courthouse, "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death." Henry's words become the rally cry for the American Revolution. This poetic speech will ignite a country to fight for its freedom and rebel against oppressive King George. Militias are formed and shots are fired at Lexington. Readers will view the events of the war that began America.
