Rejecting British authority and profoundly committed to the principles of liberty and justice as well as the land they called
home, American colonists from all walks of life answered the resounding cry for independence and gave voice to the ideals
in which they so passionately believed. The agents of the American Revolution included soldiers and generals who fought on
the frontlines, statesmen who fought behind the scenes, and ordinary individuals who contributed what they could to the cause
of freedom. Readers discover some of the notable military and political leaders of Revolution as well as some of the lesser-known
figures instrumental to securing the country's future.
