Paul Revere’s Ride by David Hackett Fischer – Of all of the accounts of the American Revolution, this is by far the best one I’ve read. Until you’ve read this book, you’ll have no idea how key a role Paul Revere actually played in the battles of Lexington and Concord. You’ll also find out how extremely organized the network of militia and volunteers really were. You’ll also learn how carefully the British and Americans regarded property rights and personal freedoms. This is a great read that, despite its size, will fly by quickly and leave you wishing there were more. Highly recommended!
