Publisher's Summary

Why did Congress create the US Marine Corps? Why did Congress create the US Navy? What did these two valiant organizations undertake during the American Revolution, and how did they work together? 

Learn, in a captivating historical fiction format, the answers to these questions. Be a party to the debates of the early politicians and military leaders as they wrestled with these questions and came up with answers that changed the world. 

Would you sacrifice your comfortable life of privilege to risk it daily for a cause larger than yourself? Samuel Nicholas did, and he became the first commandant of the Marine Corps. 

Would you give your personal fortune, the largest on the continent, to ransom the freedom of friends, neighbors, and strangers? Robert Morris did, and he financed a new nation. 

Enter the world of colonial America to share the risks and dangers of the early Americans who did these very things. They gambled their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor in a life-and-death struggle with the largest, most powerful empire the world had ever known.
