Young people have always been inspired by the men and women from the past. Filled with exciting true stories, students will also be inspired to strive for the character qualities they illustrate. Now Profiles of Valor brings to life 40 fascinating characters from America's War of Independence, including:
Nancy Strong, the patriot spy who ferreted out information about British military strategy and signaled it to Washington's spies---by hanging various colored petticoats on her clothesline!
General George Washington, whose desperate prayer in the snow of Valley Forge brought supernatural deliverance to his starving soldiers.
Reverend James Caldwell, 'The Fighting Chaplain', who sent bullets and Scripture flying toward charging British soldiers when he threw copies of Watt's Hymnal to his men for rifle wadding, shouting 'Give em Watts, boys! Give em Watts!'
