What I'm into right now: The American Revolution has always been my favorite time period to study and read about, amplified when I discovered I had an ancestor who fought in the Battle of Bunker Hill on June 17, 1775, and then even more so when I lived in Boston for two years.  In Boston, I was living and breathing this period of history on a daily basis and absolutely loved it! Here are some books that may spark an interest in this thrilling time in our history, from the first rumblings of revolt to the birth of our nation.
