Overview

In the dramatic period leading to the American Revolution, no event did more to foment patriotic sentiment among colonists than the armed occupation of Boston by British soldiers.

Well written account gives a good feeling of actually being there in colonial Boston and experiencing the tension between the colonists and the occupying forces of the British.
