Notional Book Cover — to be updated soon
Written in narrative form and intended for a general audience, Derek W. Beck’s Igniting the American Revolution: 1773–1775
follows the forgotten Dr. Joseph Warren through the beginning of the Revolution, from the Boston Tea Party to Paul Revere’s Ride and the Battle of Bunker Hill. The story then shifts to the arrival of George Washington and his struggles with forming the Continental Army while keeping the British penned up in Boston. Igniting the American Revolution
also tells of the 1775 Campaign into Canada, a two-prong attack led by the forgotten Brig. Gen. Richard Montgomery and the hero
Col. Benedict Arnold (long before his treason), ending in the epic Battle of Quebec City, which in turn aided George Washington in his efforts against the British in Boston. Thus, the hero of Igniting the American Revolution
is Boston herself.
