Why did guys in powdered wigs argue over a breakfast beverage?!?! Chester the Crab shows the road to the American Revolution – how money arguments became political arguments and then became shooting arguments. The colonial conflict begins in the French and Indian War, then moves to the Boston Massacre and Boston Tea Party and finally follows Paul Revere towards the writing of the Declaration of Independence. This funny, colorful graphic novel will excite reluctant readers, prepare students for standardized tests in history and help homeschooling parents!

Chapter 1: The French And Indian War
British redcoats march into the North American woods many years before 1776. This French and Indian War is a fight to see which empire will control North America. Will it be the French and their American Indian friends or will it be the British and their American colonists? The leaders and lessons of this war will soon lead to another war in these woods . . .

One of the bravest Bostonians is Paul Revere. His father came to Boston from France to start a shop for making things out of silver. Paul takes over the family business. But the patriotic fire in Boston pulls him from his shop and onto the trail of freedom. Revere becomes the rider, the spy, the messenger, the alarm, the warning bell of the American Revolution . . .

And sometimes the ideas are pushed by what is happening on the battlefield. Will Americans finally get their rights inside the British government — or outside it?
