The reason this novel is a fine example of HistoricalFiction is that it is based on TrueEvents which occurred during this time in History. One event in the novel which actually took place is the fact that British North America was a collection of British colonies and territories. But they were ripe for a change. Events within the colonies pointed that way. People were not happy with the way things were. Other events that really took place were the Boston Tea Party and the battle at Lexington.
Search the Web to find what these events were and write articles about everyday issues and concerns the citizens of Boston would have. The colonies were also being affected by events in other countries like Canada and Britain. What were they?
I hope you enjoy your historical adventure as you read your novel and are transported back in time.
