Fort Knox is a tribute to Henry Knox, the burly Boston bookseller who manned the artillery for George Washington during the Revolutionary War, while 18 counties nationwide are named for brave Richard Montgomery, who died in his attempt to invade Canada. Much as we laud Jefferson, Adams, and Franklin, their dreams only became real because of a motley army of merchants and mechanics, farmers and fishermen. Jack Kelly vividly captures the fraught condition of the war—the bitterly divided populace, the lack of supplies, the repeated setbacks on the battlefield, and the appalling physical hardships—and explains how these inexperienced warriors could take on and defeat the most powerful military in the world.
