Review: A fictionalized account of the memoirs of Benjamin Tallmadge, a school teacher who felt compelled to join Washington's army at the outbreak of the Revolutionary War. This is a lavishly illustrated picture book. Oil on canvas paintings by Bill Farnsworth, a timeline and additional resources make this book a nice addition to any collection.
