America’s #1 radio talk-show host and multi-million-copy #1 New York Times bestselling author presents the second book in a series for young readers with a history teacher who travels back in time to have adventures with exceptional Americans.
Rush Revere rides again! Saddle up with Rush Limbaugh’s really good pal for a new time-travel adventure.
“Whoa there, young historians! Before we go rush, rush, rushing off anywhere, I’d like a moment. I’m Liberty, Rush Revere’s loquacious equine companion—his trusty talking horse! Always at the ready to leap from the twenty-first century into America’s past, that’s me. When he says ‘Let’s go!’ I’m so there. I’m jazzed, I’m psyched, I’m—”
“Ah, excuse me, Liberty?”
“Usually you say ‘oh no, not again!’ and ‘while we’re in colonial Boston, can I try the baked beans?’”
“Okay, fine—you do the talking. I’ll just be over here, if you need me.…”
Well, he’s sulking now, but I couldn’t be your tour guide across time without Liberty! His name says it all: the freedom we celebrate every July Fourth with fireworks and hot dogs (and maybe some of those baked beans). But how did America get free? How did thirteen newborn colonies tell the British king where he could stick his unfair taxes?
Jump into the bustling streets of Boston in 1765, where talk of revolution is growing louder. I said LOUDER. You’ll have to SHOUT to be heard over the angry cries of “Down with the king!” and “Repeal the Stamp Act!” that fill the air. You’ll meet fierce supporters of liberty like Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and my idol, Paul Revere, as they fearlessly defy British rule. It’s an exciting, dangerous, turbulent, thrilling time to be an American…and exceptional young patriots like you won’t want to miss a minute. Let’s ride!
interesting insights into personalities of important figures in American history

In this sequel to Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims (2013), colonial-dressing history teacher Rush Revere and his special horse Liberty time travel with students Tommy, Freedom, Cameron (Cam), and even snooty Elizabeth back to pre-American Revolution days. They talk to Benjamin Franklin in 1765 when he tried to convince the English Parliament to remove the Stamp Act. They meet Patrick Henry that same year in Virginia prior to his famous 1775 speech to the House of Burgesses. They have an audience in Windsor Palace with King George III in 1766. They visit with Samuel Adams and Paul Revere in Boston, MA, following the
My kids love learning history with Rush Revere!

We loved the book (with historical photographs) but we also loved the audio. Rush's story is both educational and entertaining! Laugh-out-loud funny at times! Liberty (the talking time-traveling horse) is our favorite character. In book 2, Rush Revere, Liberty, and a couple of the kids travel to events like the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, and even to Windsor Castle to meet with King George III. And we loved meeting historical Americans like Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and our favorite, Patrick Henry. We learned about the taxes imposed upon the colonists by Parliament. What a great teaching moment for my kids! And we loved Liberty's Stomp Act song about the Stamp Act!!! The kids were completely engaged! Was that Rush Limbaugh singing on the audio!? My kids have the song memorized now! They keep singing it over and over! Most importantly, this book teaches the value and importance of fighting for freedom! Favorite line: "Only when we are free can we be all that God wants us to be. Only when we are free can we do all that God wants us to do. Freedom is from God. And when we fight for freedom we always fight on the side of God."
my daughter loves this book/cd!

My daughter has never liked history and has had a hard time with grades in school. She loves this book more than I could have imagined! A great way for her to learn history that seemed boring to her before.
Review for Rush Revere and the First Patriots.
By Ann Costello on Jun 30, 2014
As a history enthusiast, I was so impressed with the interesting details of these amazing American First Patriots. I read this to my 2nd and 3rd grade grandchildren this summer, and I know they will have so much important background for next year's history class and projects. They enjoyed hearing about these heroes and wanted me to keep reading. I have recommended this to parents home schooling their children and will bring these series to their school. I think these books should be in all schools and libraries. I feel Rush Limbaugh brought these American heroes to life again and children reading his story will have a personal connection to them. He has made history fun to learn.

PLEASANT MEMORIES OF I LEARNED MANY YEARS AGO
By John Andricosky on May 18, 2014
IT BROUGHT ME BACK TO MY DAYS IN GRAMMAR SCHOOL DURING THE 1950"s. IT IS INFORMATION LEARNED MANY YEARS AGO BUT NOT THOUGHT ABOUT ON A REGULAR BASIS. IT WAS A PLEASURE THINKING OF THOSE LONG LOST MEMORIES MANY YEARS AGO.
By Amy Cawvey on Mar 11, 2014
My daughter, who is age 8, was so excited when the latest book arrived. She is thrilled and we are already finished with the first two chapters and it just arrived late today. I highly recommend both books. She already linked "taxation without representation" with a lesson they are discussing in school. Looking forward to more books!
Rush Revere and the First Patriots -

I purchased this 2nd set for my grandchildren, (I kept a book and CD set for my reading & listening enjoyment). Mr. Limbaugh's attention to historical correctness, brought to book and CD presentation that children, (and adults), will enjoy while learning the truth of the history of our great nation, is priceless. Thank You !!.
A Great Read that Teaches History in a Fun Way!
By Jonathan Fincher on May 20, 2014
This is the second book in a series that brings history to life for young people. I have read both books with my classes of 60 students, and they have absolutely loved the story. Liberty, the magical time-traveling horse, whisks substitute teacher Rush Revere and several students back in time to witness events that built our Great Nation. There is plenty of humor to keep kids laughing, along with its rich vocabulary and literary techniques, such as the use of countless idioms. While your view of the author may cause you to think twice about purchasing the book, don't judge it on him and his view, rather on the value of the facts of history presented. My students have enjoyed learning about history and they expressed their excitement about wanting to read this second book, after the first, in letters to the author himself. I recommend taking the time to check out its value.
Great for young and old alike

More authentic stories about American history to read to your kids. Love it! Rush makes stories easier for kids (and adults) to learn the true stories of the founding of America. They research the actual letters and books from the era and synthesize them into a story that is both entertaining and teaching lessons at the same time. Great resource to begin to take back our history from progressive "interpretations" of our founding.
