The Imagination Station #13: The Redcoats
The first of a three-book story arc about
the American Revolution, The Redcoats Are Coming follows
Patrick and Beth as they assist the revolutionaries by waking up the
sleeping citizens of 1775 Concord before the Redcoats come. In this
adventure, the cousins meet Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, and John
Hancock. They help smuggle musket balls, sound the alarm that the
Redcoats are coming, and deliver a secret message to Paul Revere.
Along the way they learn that most of the revolutionaries leaned on
God's direction and even pastors helped in the cause.
