"Intolerable Acts & Boston Tea Party"

Liberty Kids #1 The Boston Tea Party

Benjamin Franklin enlists the help of young people to record the happenings leading up to and during the Revolution for his newspaper the Pennsylvania Gazette. First, there is James Hiller, a patriot who tends to act before he thinks and is, at times, too quick a judge in his search for American heroes. Next is Henri, a French orphan who's only quest is for food. Lastly, a young woman named Sarah Phillips joins the team; the daughter of an ex-English general with strong views opposing slavery. Together, they travel the colonies witnessing the sacrifices made for freedom. Summary Written by Max Vaughn


"The Turtle" - Parts 1-3

The kids think they've spotted a sea monster in New York Harbor, but it turns out to be a submersible craft invented by David Bushnell. James talks his way into the first mission for the new submarine, which fails in its attempt to sink a ship but does do damage that weakens the British blockade of the harbor.


"Midnight Ride" Parts 1-3

Sarah and James travel to Boston to deliver a message to Patriot leader Dr. Joseph Warren and end up riding with the famous messengers so that they can write about it for the paper.
