Foreign-born Champions of the American Revolution

Book - 2003
Rate this:
Ideals such as freedom and justice inspired many colonists to fight in the war for American independence. Incredibly, these same ideals inspired men from across the ocean to fight for a cause that was not their own. Casimir Pulaski, Frederick William Baron von Stueben, and the Marquis de Lafayette are only three of the foreign-born champions detailed within this book. Full-color portraits, true tales of commitment, and bold initiatives invite readers to salute these men who helped to build Americas democracy.
