Three Revolutionary War Books
1. Ring of Secrets by Roseanna M. White
I must confess I haven't actually finished reading this one. I started it on July 4 and am only a little ways in. It's a bit description heavy so far, but I am intrigued and want to continue reading it. It also comes highly recommended, being endorsed by Melanie Dickerson and Tamara Leigh. In this story a British noblewoman living in the Colonies must decide which side she's on as war looms. Dare she provide her worthless fiancee's cousin with the information needed by the Patriots?
For movies, I'd recommend Beyond the Mask. A mercenary for the East India Company goes on the run after trying to get out the racket. He hides as a parson and is, ultimately, forced to flee to the Colonies. Once there, in an attempt to earn the respect of the woman he loves, he dons a mask and helps protect Patriots from violence. With adventure, romance, humor, redemption, and well-known characters such as Ben Franklin, this was a great movie.
Other Revolutionary Wars that come to mind (I've probably seen more) are Mel Gibson's The Patriot, Henry Fonda's Drums Along the Mohawk, and Abbot and Costello's Time of Our Lives.
