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.

I learned some new things about the American Revolution from this book, and it was a quick read. I was glad the author addressed, at least a little, the fact that master sent slaves to fight or otherwise help with the war effort, but those slaves had no guarantee of freedom after. In her notes ab...
