"Nina Sankovitch's American Rebels explores, for the first time, the intertwined lives of the Hancock, Quincy, and Adams families, and the role each person played in sparking the American Revolution. Before they were central figures in American history, John Hancock, John Adams, Josiah Quincy Junior, Abigail Smith Adams, and Dorothy Quincy Hancock had forged intimate connections during their childhood in Braintree, Massachusetts. Raised as loyal British subjects who quickly saw the need to rebel, their collaborations against the Crown and Parliament were formed years before the revolution and became stronger during the period of rising taxes and increasing British troop presence in Boston. Together, the families witnessed the horrors of the Boston Massacre, the Battles of Lexington and Concord, and Bunker Hill; the trials and tribulations of the Siege of Boston; meetings of the Continental Congress; transatlantic missions for peace and their abysmal failures; and the final steps that led to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. American Rebels explores how the desire for independence cut across class lines, binding people together as well as dividing them-rebels versus loyalists-as they pursued commonly-held goals of opportunity, liberty, and stability. Nina Sankovitch's new book is a fresh history of our revolution that makes readers look more closely at Massachusetts and the small town of Braintree when they think about the story of America's early years."--… (lisätietoja)

Ina Sankovitch's American Rebels: How the Hancock, Adams, and Quincy Families Fanned the Flames of Revolution was an interesting book that discusses the interconnections between these 4 families that grew up together in the Braintree, Massachusetts.

John Hancock, John Adams, and Josiah Quincy were childhood friends whose families intermarried. Loyal British subjects who, through the post-war policies of King and Parliament, were involved in the evolution from loyal colony to rebellion.

Families from different backgrounds were involved were witnesses and participants in the Stamp Act Congress, the Boston Massacre, the Battle of Lexington and Concord, Bunker Hill, the siege of Boston and the Continental Congress. They took the divergent paths of loyalists and rebels that ultimately led to the Declaration of Independence and the Revolutionary War.

A 4 star book that looks at the relationship and choices of these 3 families on our country's path to rebellion. ( )

This is an excellent book that contextualizes the American Revolution as a community that was not single minded in achieving continued relationships with the British Empire. Both the groups, loyalists and liberty seekers, encouraged resolution for the betterment of their communities. War was not sought, but delivered. This work offers a deeper look at and explanation of commonalities, social needs, and events that lead to the American Revolution through the views of individuals from one village near Boston, Massachusetts, Braintree. Dependent on letters and diary entries, the author weaves together the ideas of the community members. and finds a central expectation of liberty. This desire for liberty was encouraged in the community by the ministry of Rev. Hancock, who exemplified these ideals thirty years prior to to the outset of revolution. So often works of history center on an individual, the war efforts, the policies in conflict, and the leaders. This book is not overtly descriptive of actions or lengthy details; the premise relies on the words of the individuals, historical details available today, and logic to craft a story to inform the present day on the day-to-day reasons for the American Revolution.

Strictly for History Fans, The books tells of the deep connection, through family and neighbors, that these families held. It begins when all the men and women we learned about in history class were just youngsters. It then follows them as young adults into the American Revolution.

I enjoyed this look into the young heroes of The American Revolution. I especially liked that [a:Nina Sankovitch|4400545|Nina Sankovitch|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1490628933p2/4400545.jpg] put the women of these families in light I had never read before. ( )

I was given an ARC of this book by Netgalley in return for a fair and honest review.

An excellent book on the founders of The United States of America. The history was fascinating, with Josiah Quincey and John Hancock being the most interesting to me. The book covers from the early happenings in the the Massachusetts colony to the Declaration of Independence. It was a sad read at times as the fate of each historical figure unfolded. ( )

I was kind of afraid that this would turn out to be as exciting as "the begats" of the Bible. No! It is infinitely more interesting and well written but just as meticulously researched.
It does have fun with the begats as necessary to understand the entwining of the families noted in the publisher's blurb but also the individuals, their religious and political proclivities that embodied the reasons for their involvement in the coming division with England even as these attitudes were evident almost since their arrival in North America. Don't get me wrong, it is very readable! But I am part of a family of history geeks who used to be involved in reenacting the American Revolution.
I loved the reading of it and learned a lot, but if I buy a print copy it will walk away, so I will get the audiobook for my personal use.
I requested and received a free ebook copy from St Martin's Press via NetGalley. Thank you! ( )
