Page 46:
Colonists cannot be represented in Parliament. Never will be. They simply are not an equal part of the empire. They are not, nor will they ever be, Englishmen.
Benjamin Franklin

Page 48:
You cannot suddenly decide to tax us, exploit us, drain our resources. You cannot do with us as you please. With your wast army and your great navy, you may have the power. But you do not have the right.
Benjamin Franklin

This is the first book of the series American Revolutionary War and describes the story of Sons of Liberty as well as the Boston Tea Party.

Several historical characters are very well described in this splendid book, such as: Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, George Washington and Lieutenant General Thomas Gage.

The Glorious Cause is the sequel of this book.
