I Survived the American Revolution, 1776 by Lauren Tarshis

Into the Wild

Read I Survived the American Revolution, 1776 Online Free - Hundreds of American soldiers were already dead. Battlefields in Massachusetts and New York were soaked in the blood of American patriots. And 11-year-old Nathaniel Knox was in the midst of it all, trapped in a swamp and fighting for his life.

The air was thick with smoke and gunpowder. Bleeding soldiers screamed in agony. Through the trees, Nate saw the line of British redcoat soldiers - at least 100 men. Their blood-colored uniforms seemed to glow in the smoky haze. Gunfire blasted all around him. Nate knelt behind a rock, gripping his gun with shaking hands.

The American Revolution had started as a glorious struggle for freedom. America was determined to tear itself away from England, out of the grips of King George III. The thirteen American colonies would become a brand new country: The United States of America!

But King George was like a snake with America gripped in his fangs - and he didn't want to let go.

So now it was war - brutal, bloody war.

118 pages. Another excellent adventure back int time. Great details and character development. Great conflicts and plot in this one. Both boys and girls will enjoy reading this one. The storyline kept me engaged up until the very last page. It has a nice, satisfying ending. There are extra histo...

I have always enjoyed this series and this book was a nice addition to the collection. I appreciate the story she chose to tell because it's a lesser known battle of the war and it's always good to add those stories to kids' knowledge of a historical time period. It wasn't my favorite, mainly bec...

I liked these this character has a clear growth arc. Maybe this rating is falsely increased because I've been perusing a lot of "reluctant reader" children's lit right now, and this is how you do that stuff correctly. You don't get reluctant readers reading with potty humor and disrespectful char...

I thought this book was great. It is about a boy that is named Nathanial Fox that is put into war against the Great Britain. He was very scared of fighting. I would to if I was 11 years old and had to fight grown men. In this book it shows you the weapons that they used, like a bayonet, or a musk...

Genre: Historical Fiction Grade Level: 4-6 Unique: This book places the reader in a historical place while having a very relatable main character. I think it's interesting how Nathaniel (main character) gets stuck in the war and has a conflict that is teaching students about history.

Somewhat gorier than previous ones, so maybe not great for a tender third grader but perfect for older grades.

Please tell me I'm not the only approaching-middle-aged woman who preorders these books for herself and waits on pins and needles for them to arrive.

I loved the plot line of this book. For such a vast topic she did a great job of giving readers a strong overview of the beginning stages of the war. It was definitely one of my favorites from this series. If your child hasn't read any I survived books I would be shocked, but this would be a grea...
