In the American colonies with the 1770s, people had been fed up with British laws. Local farmers and tradesmen secretly formed a militia. From that very first battle towards the final showdown at Yorktown, the Americans fought against tremendous odds. Illustrated with black-and-white photographs, the tale of our country's fight for independence is brought to life in fast-moving, dramatic detail. In 1775, when the British marched into Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts, the Americans were ready. Food and guns were scarce. But George Washington's ragged army fought for – and won – the freedom and independence we cherish to this day. The British army was bigger and better trained.
