I started this book in Massachusetts in 1973 with the question: How did thirteen disjointed colonies form a new nation when they were held captive by the all-powerful British empire? And aside from Washington, Adams, Franklin, and Jefferson, who stepped up as the supporting cast? Where did they come from? What kind of determination and courage did it take to win against such incredible odds?
I found the stories of over twenty of this heroic supporting cast in bits and pieces in hundreds of places. This book is my attempt to put those stories in one concise book for the benefit of my family and friends.
