Summary
  • "The narrative is constructed around two thematic lines. One story centers on the American patriot Paul Revere; the other, on British General Thomas Gage."
  • David Fischer fashions an exciting narrative that offers deep insight into the outbreak of revolution and the emergence of the American republic. Beginning in the years before the outbreak of war, Fischer illuminates the figure of Paul Revere, a man far more complex than the simple artisan and messenger of tradition
