History Smashers: The American Revolution Library Binding – July 20, 2021
Enhance your purchase
On April 18, 1775, Paul Revere rode through Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts, shouting, "The British are coming!" to start the American Revolution.RIGHT?
WRONG! Paul Revere made it to Lexington, but before he could complete his mission, he was captured!
The truth is, dozens of Patriots rode around warning people about the Redcoats' plans that night. It was actually a man named Samuel Prescott who succeeded, alerting townspeople in Lexington and then moving on to Concord. But the Revolutionary War didn't officially start for more than a year after Prescott's ride. No joke.
Discover the nonfiction series that smashes everything you thought you knew about history. Don't miss History Smashers: The Mayflower, Women's Right to Vote, Pearl Harbor, and Titanic.

In fact the American Revolution was totally unique. Nothing like our revolution had occurred before in history, and so called revolutions since our revolution have been bloodbaths orchestrated by power mad men like Lenin or Mao, or Hitler. Millions have died because of lies and distortions by groups claiming to seek liberty, but their word liberty meant power to a few fanatics and oppression to millions. The American Revolution delivered more freedom to more people than any revolution in history. No bloodbaths after victory. No one gaining absolute power for as long as they lived, like Lenin, Mao, Castro, and others. The American Revolution featured men refusing power and walking away from power offered to them. There is much more to praise about the American Revolution, but the reader will not find it in the pages of this comic.
