Amazon.com description: Product Description: Before the Colonies declared their Independence from Britain in July of 1776, their hatred of British rule and its occupation of America, was exemplified when a group of men dumped over 300 chests of tea into the cold waters of Boston Harbor, set fire to the town of Charlestown when Generals Howe and Gage attacked the Continental Army’s redoubts on Breeds and Bunker Hill; and, ultimately forced the British to abandon Boston altogether in the early Spring of 1776 – after eight combative and deadly years of occupation. A small group of young men, led by John Pinkham whose father had been murdered by a British Major, set out to harass the British occupiers by engaging in clandestine acts which, not only annoyed the British leaders, but literally thwarted the British efforts to defeat the rebels in general, and Washington’s army in particular. Some of these “coercive acts” are historical and based upon fact – as others were not committed to the record. This story of patriotism and bravery, during the Revolutionary War, details the efforts of this cadre of men and that of the efforts of one Patriot, and his friend. Their clandestine actions left the Howe brothers and Generals Cornwallis and Clinton perplexed and apprehensive as to who, exactly, was causing them so much trouble. The bold actions of these Patriot Spies – which included the burning of Manhattan, also helped Washington defeat the Hessians at Trenton and Princeton, but ultimately helped convince General Clinton to abandon Philadelphia, after the Patriots kidnapped General Howe.
