The name of Bill O'Reilly printed on a cover can easily ward off those who abhor him. Nevertheless, remember that this book is not written by him. O'Reilly just introduces it.
What it was like to live in the times of the American Revolution, when the whole country was turned into a war zone? How did the Founding Fathers feel? Did anyone understand the scale of the implications for our world? Each chapter of Bill O'Reilly's Legends and Lies: The Patriots exposes a new detail of this hard time.
Yes, it was really hard times. Signing the Declaration of Independence was not the work of a moment. This was preceded by decades of struggle and sustainable actions, which demanded bravery, strategy and a bit of luck. American rioters fought with British loyalists for their lives and freedom. It was a real challenge for everybody. No one could stay away.
This historical book written as an addition to the docudrama Legend and Lies is difficult to put down. The stories behind the American Revolution should not fall on deaf ears. That's what you need to know.
