In My American Revolution, Robert Sullivan investigates the true history of the crossing of the Delaware, its down-home reenactment each year for the past half a century, and - toward the end of a personal odyssey that involves camping in New Jersey backyards, hiking through lost mountains, and eventually some physical therapy - he evacuates illegally from Brooklyn to Manhattan by handmade boat.

He recounts a Brooklyn historian's failed attempt to memorialize a colonial Maryland regiment; a tattoo artist's more successful use of a colonial submarine, which resulted in his 2007 arrest by the New York City police and the FBI; and last but not least, along New York harbor, Sullivan re-creates an ancient signal beacon.

    " I learned a few things. But his quest isn't clear and for all that he tells bits of his lifestory, not very personal. "

    " Decent read. Good vacation book. By that I mean it won't distract from the vacation, but can fill the down times. I suspect it will be better for folks familiar with the places involved. History hobbyists would also enjoy. "

    " Like Mark Kurlansky, Robert Sullivan can make even the most boring subject utterly desirable. He doesn't have to try here, though, as the romance of Revolutionary War history meets the grit of present-day NYC and its surroundings. Enlightening and enjoyable. "
