I'm Liberty, Rush Revere's loquacious equine companion--his trusty talking horse Always at the ready to leap from the twenty-first century into America's past, that's me. When he says 'Let's go ' I'm so there. I'm jazzed, I'm psyched, I'm--" "Ah, excuse me, Liberty?" "Yeah, Rush?" "Usually you say 'oh no, not again ' and 'while we're in colonial Boston, can I try the baked beans?'" "Okay, fine--you do the talking. I'll just be over here, if you need me...." Well, he's sulking now, but I couldn't be your tour guide across time without Liberty His name says it all: the freedom we celebrate every July Fourth with fireworks and hot dogs (and maybe some of those baked beans). But how did America get free? How did thirteen newborn colonies tell the British king where he could stick his unfair taxes? Jump into the bustling streets of Boston in 1765, where talk of revolution is growing louder. I said LOUDER. You'll have to SHOUT to be heard over the angry cries of "Down with the king " and "Repeal the Stamp Act " that fill the air. You'll meet fierce supporters of liberty like Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and my idol, Paul Revere, as they fearlessly defy British rule. It's an exciting, dangerous, turbulent, thrilling time to be an American...and exceptional young patriots like you won't want to miss a minute. Let's ride.
