This exciting historical narrative covers
a lot more ground than the famed ride itself.
The author closely examines Paul Revere’s
role as a key organizer in the Revolutionary
cause. He also paints a revealing portrait
of General Thomas Gage, the commander-in-chief
of British forces in North America and military
governor of Massachusetts, whose plan to
disarm the citizenry sparked the battles
at Lexington and Concord. The book also pays
attention to the shaping of public opinion
in both America and Britain and how this
influenced the unfolding of events. The writing
and the story proceed at a gallop.
