King George: What Was His Problem?

by Steve Sheinkin

Illustrations by Tim Robinson

First Release:

August 2008

ISBN: 9781596433199

Proving that the truth can indeed be stranger than fiction, this collection of quirky anecdotes, quotes, and miscellany guides readers through the American Revolution-from the Townshend Acts of 1767 to Britain's surrender on October 19, 1781. Along the way, we learn how a wig started the Boston Massacre; how "Molly Pitcher" got her name; and why a man in the Continental Army tried to steal a cannonball (his explanation: his mother could use it to pound spices). Epilogue. Source notes. Index. Black-andwhite art.
