Quotes from People Who Have Purchased These Books:
"Not just for children! Bought two for a Mort Kunstler lover I know!"

"Just right for grade school aged kids. Very good illustrations."

"For a book that is only 46 pages, there is a lot covered in a short amount of space...The paintings on each page are breathtaking. There is life and action in each picture...I would buy it for the paintings alone, but the text is interesting and readable as well."

"The beautiful, detailed paintings nicely complement the well-written text, giving a detailed overview of the history...Any preteen who enjoys nonfiction will enjoy this book."


Young readers learn and interact with the story of America’s war for independence through the epic paintings of America’s foremost historical artist, Mort Künstler

For the first title in this series, Künstler’s paintings bring history to life with vivid, high-action portrayals of the primary events that won Americans their freedom from Britain: the Boston Tea Party, the Siege of Yorktown, Paul Revere’s ride, and the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The epic artworks faithfully chronicle these moments from history and encourage children to look again and again for special details—from the number of stars on George Washington’s flag to the style of a soldier’s uniform. Together with text by award-winning historian Alan Axelrod, these brilliantly explicit paintings engage a young reader’s attention and introduce them to American history through the visual arts.

Known for his vivid use of color, light, and shadow, Künstler is one of the most widely exhibited artists documenting American history today. His graphically detailed work and skillful portrayals have been lauded for its accuracy by historians and admired by curators in museums around the globe. From a frozen post-battle landscape to a weary Union soldier’s facial expression, he captures, in beautifully rendered detail, the geographical setting and the human spirit in each painting. Adults and children alike will see the story of the American Revolution unfold before their very eyes.
