The book also made a huge historical error in stating that George Washington's older brother Lawrence remained a staunch Loyalist during the Revolution resulting in family division. This is simply not true. Lawrence had been dead many years before the beginning of the Revolution having died while George was still a teen-ager. It was from Lawrence that George inherited Mount Vernon. George did have other brothers but all of them served on the Patriots side. It may be that the author confused Lawrence with George's in-laws some of whom remained Loyalists, but when writing a historical book, especially one whose purpose is to educate children, correct factual detail is a must.This was a big mistake to make and one that could easily have been avoided just by double-checking facts. If this book is ever reprinted I hope this mistake will be corrected.
Despite the error I found, this book had a lot of good information and was a valuable resource in teaching my second grade students about the Revolutionary War. I just made sure I expanded or explained where needed.
