THE CROSSING: HOW GEORGE WASHINGTON SAVED THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION by Jim Murphy

Posted on Updated on

How did George Washington save the American Revolution?  Basically, by sneaking around in the dark a lot.  Jim Murphy tells the story of Washington’s ragtag army–how they survived when all odds and even the weather were against them and how Washington’s brilliant leadership (and quite a bit of luck) led them to victory over the British.  This short, well-illustrated chapter book would be ideal for upper-elementary readers, both for school research and for recreational reading.
