The Rosen Publishing Group, Inc, Dec 15, 2002 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 24 pages
Ideals such as freedom and justice inspired many colonists to fight in the war for American independence. Incredibly, these same ideals inspired men from across the ocean to fight for a cause that was not their own. Casimir Pulaski, Frederick William Baron von Stueben, and the Marquis de Lafayette are only three of the foreign-born champions detailed within this book. Full-color portraits, true tales of commitment, and bold initiatives invite readers to salute these men who helped to build America s democracy.
