Rush Revere and the Star-Spangled Banner is the fourth book in the Adventures of Rush Revere Series, and it is the most exciting yet. Substitute teacher Rush Revere is back with his trusty sidekick Liberty and the students of Manchester Middle School. This time, Tommy takes center stage. His grandfather is ill, and Rush Revere hopes a field trip to Washington DC, will distract and inspire Tommy. There, the crew visits national landmarks including the Washington Monument and the White House to learn about American government. Looking back in time, they see the writing of the national anthem, witness Dolley Madison saving a patriotic American symbol, and so much more. But first, they must avoid exploding pickle barrels, museum guards, Redcoats, and a surprise visitor. Tommy writes it all down in his grandfather’s notebook. Included are full color illustrations, photos, and historical documents.
