Publisher Summary

Once there were four lads… John [Hancock], Paul [Revere], George [Washington], and Ben [Franklin].

In other words, they took a few…liberties. And to be honest, they were not always appreciated. This is the story of five little lads before they became five really big Founding Fathers.
