* "How does he do it? Once again Freedman takes a crucial moment in American history and imbues it with living grace and powerful tension. . . . Along the way, he frankly delineates the place of women, indentured servants, and African American slaves and freedmen, and explains their roles in the revolution."--Booklist, Starred Review

* "A must for every collection."--School Library Journal, Starred Review

* "If Freedman wrote the history textbooks, we would have many more historians . . . An excellent addition to the American history collection and an engrossing read."--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
