"The 40 houses and 48 people profiled in this lushly illustrated coffee-table book provide a sense of place for the American Revolution. Hugh Howard's text peoples the bare rooms in the reader's mind, and Straus' photographs give the armchair traveler a good sense of what tourists experience, if not a complete historical accounting." —San Francisco Chronicle
“A must-have library addition . . . if your interest in American history extends to architecture, brief biographies, and juicy domestic gossip.” —Sarasota Herald-Tribune
“Could this book get any better?” —Portsmouth [N.H.] Herald
