A Patriotic Pick: July 2021

Enjoy this Grateful American™ reading recommendation!
Whether it’s via their tone, topic, or tenor, certain works just say “America.” Here is one such title, suggested by 2016 Grateful American™ Book Prize winner Chris Stevenson, author of The Drum of Destiny: Gabriel Cooper & the Road to Revolution:
- George Washington's Indispensable Men: Alexander Hamilton, Tench Tilghman, and the Aides-De-Camp Who Helped Win American Independence by Arthur S. Lefkowitz. Great men rarely achieve that greatness alone, and the Father of our Country is no exception. This readable, fact-filled volume offers an account of 32 largely forgotten figures — including Samuel B. Webb, William Palfrey, and Richard Kidder Meade — who stood beside George Washington as history was being made during the Revolutionary War.
Each year, the Grateful American™ Foundation, through its Book Prize, honors excellence in children’s historical nonfiction and fiction focused on the people and events that have shaped the U.S. since its birth. To learn more about the prize, click here.
