Ropes of the Revolution: The Tale of the Boston Tea Party
Sam Adams and the Sons of Liberty are planning a protest on British taxes. On December 16, 1773, they're going to dump shiploads of British tea into the Boston harbor. Fifteen-year-old Benjamin and his friend, Joseph, want a part of the action! Unfortunately, Benjamin's boss won't let him leave the rope-making shop. If Benjamin can't escape, he'll miss the start of the American Revolution.
