Here is a book for both young and old. All members of the family will enjoy this. Coffin takes you to the front lines of the American Revolution to see the Providential Hand of God in our struggle for freedom.
This account of true stories of the Revolutionary War is told in a captivating narrative. These stories were told to Charles Coffin by men who were there and fought in these battles. When Coffin was a young man these revolutionary war heroes visited his family home when
he was a young man. He never forgot these stories and in fact he wrote them down for other generations yet unborn so they could consider and ponder the miraculous work of God who fought for us.
For the success of their endeavor, in the Declaration of Independence, our Founders declared that they "looked to the Supreme Judge of the Universe for the rectitude of our intentions...with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence."
That God answered their prayer with miraculous intervention this account will tell. Coffin retells these stories of the miracles wrought by the Hand of God's Providence that gave us the greatest nation for the freedom of humankind the world has ever witnessed. Later founding father Noah Webster would write in his History of the United States, "The religion which has introduced civil liberty, is the religion of Christ and His apostles." —Noah Webster
"My hope is the patriotism, self-denial, and devotion of the founding generation will never be forgotten and that these pages may deepen the love of this generation for their country, and quicken their love for liberty and the rights of man."
"In this modern era of historical dishonesty, the work of Charles Coffin stands strong. His fear of God, his love for his country, and his respect for historical truth combine to give us a faithful, passionate, and accurate story of our nation's fight for liberty. I pray that
everyone, young and old alike, will read and remember The Boys of '76."
