America needs YOU! Do you have what it takes to be a Revolutionary War soldier? These are tense times between Britain and her American colonies. In Boston, tea has been dumped in the harbor and revolution is brewing in the streets. Militias are drilling in town squares and all around you can hear the call of freedom. But how will you be trained? How will you be paid? How will weapons be supplied? And uniforms? What if you are wounded?

This abundantly illustrated book will prime you for the interview that will determine your fate—and the war that will forge America's future. Prepare to answer the call!

History is exciting and memorable in this creative nonfiction series that ''preps'' children for some of the most fascinating occupations throughout time. Each book features an original format that allows kids to identify with the given profession. Detailed illustrations bring the action to life. And engaging text challenges students to learn as much as they can as they prepare for a ''job interview'' at the end of the book. All of the topics selected complement social studies curriculum in grades 3 to 6.
