    Excerpt from Paul Revere: The Torch Bearer of the Revolution

    It has been Wisely said that Time must lay a finger on events to make them into history. The further away we stand from certain pictures, the more distinct they appear. The events we read of in today’s newspaper are not history, but twenty years, or fifty, or a century hence, our descendants will pore over the musty, dusty files, and history will be born.Paul Revere never imagined that he was living in an epoch – making period; yet the story of his eventful life holds a fascination of its own, appealing strongly to the interest of readers, old and young. He stood for so much in the history of our country in those stirring Revolutionary times, that we cannot lightly pass over the many services he rendered to the cause of Liberty.

    About the book: Benjamin Franklin excelled in the roles of diplomat, postmaster, political theorist, scientist, satirist, and musician, and yet we still know so little about his life. Fellow Philadelphian George Fisher wrote this biography in 1898—illustrated here with black and white images throughout—and it depicts a Ben Franklin not seen in other portraits of the man. Following him from his boyhood, when he first wrote articles for his brother’s Boston paper, to his years as a statesman and inventor, Fisher also deals with Franklin’s political intrigues with the British and French, as well as his illegitimate children, offering a unique perspective of this most fascinating American figure.

    Molly Pitcher is a nickname given to a woman said to have fought in the American Battle of Monmouth, generally believed to have been Mary Ludwig Hays McCauley. However, various Molly Pitcher tales grew in the telling, and many historians regard Molly Pitcher as folklore rather than history, or suggest that Molly Pitcher may be a composite image inspired by the actions of a number of real women. The name itself may have originated as a nickname given to women who carried water to men on the battlefield during War.
