Summary
Boston in 1775 is an island city occupied by British troops after a series of incendiary incidents by patriots who range from sober citizens to thuggish vigilantes. After the Boston Tea Party, soldiers and residents have warily maneuvered around each other until April 19, when violence finally erupts at Lexington and Concord. In June, skirmishes give way to outright war in the Battle of Bunker Hill. It would be the bloodiest battle of the Revolution to come, and the point of no return for the rebellious colonists
Summary
Traces the experiences of Patriot leader Dr. Joseph Warren, a newly recruited George Washington, and British General William Howe
