1st printing. Written by Xavier Niz. Art by Brian Bascle. The story of the United States, from its rebellion against Great Britain to the construction of the Statue of Liberty, is celebrated in this line of illustrated histories designed to teach school children about history. The spark of the American Revolution is told in The Boston Tea Party, as Boston merchants and patriots protest Britain's excessive taxation by destroying shipments of tea in Boston Harbor. As Britain moves to quell Boston's rebellion, Paul Revere's Ride alerts the countryside outside Boston of the movement of Britain's army. Winter at Valley Forge tells the compelling story of George Washington's army, reeling from defeats in New York and Pennsylvania, as it rebuilds for the coming campaign in conditions of deprivation and cold. The War of Independence won, the nascent United States turned to The Creation of the U.S. Constitution to form a new government that could govern the former British colonies as a unified nation. Three decades after the American Revolution Britain and America went to war once more, and the story of a young lawyer named Francis Scott Key and the poem he wrote upon witnessing of the bombardment of Fort McHenry in Baltimore's harbor is told in The Story of the Star-Spangled Banner. Finally, a century after America's independence from Britain, a sculptor in France celebrates the spark of liberty lit by America, and his story - and the story of his greatest creation - is told in The Story of the Statue of Liberty. These stories, by comics creators like Dave Hoover, Matt Doeden, Terry Beatty, Gordon Purcell, and more, will educate children in the American experience.
