Stories of men and women who changed the world
My latest book, The Long Road to Revolution, is the story of the pivotal events in
colonial America leading to the outbreak of the American Revolution. This book includes
well-known events, such as the Stamp Act, the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party,
and the first shots at Lexington and Concord. Other tea parties, incidents of tarring
and feathering, and rioting are described. Rivalries between the colonial powers--England,
France, and Spain--and the consequences for the American colonists are detailed.
In addition, the impact of pirates such as Blackbeard in the early 1700s is discussed.
There is also a wealth of information about the Indians during this time period. This
book covers many famous American patriots such as Samuel Adams, Thomas Jefferson,
Patrick Henry, Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Franklin, and George Washington. It also
includes the viewpoints of the Loyalists or Tories and the British soldiers stationed in

Did you know that German Hessians were more than a quarter
of the troops sent by the British to fight in America, that most of
them were not mercenaries, and that many stayed in America after
the war? The Hessians and the American Revolution, available as an
ebook, describes all of that as well as the major battles that the Hessians
participated in and their important role in the Revolutionary War. Fascinating
facts about the Hessians and those they were involved with are highlighted.
There are individual stories about many of the Hessians and what happened
to them after the war. The impact of these troops on American culture is discussed.

Another ebook by Daniel Grimes is Braddock's Defeat: George Washington
and the French and Indian War.
This is the story of one of the biggest Indian victories in the history of North America.
The French and many different Indian tribes decisively defeated a much larger British
army led by General Edward Braddock in 1755 in western Pennsylvania, during the
French and Indian War. Among the British ranks was a young officer from Virginia
named George Washington. In this war Washington gained valuable military
experience, which would later enable him to become commander-in-chief of the
American army against England in the Revolutionary War. Famous people such as
George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Gage, and Daniel Boone--all involved
with the Braddock Expedition--would be changed forever and would distinguish
themselves further in the decades to come.

The newest ebook is The Irish Who Fought for Mexico: The San Patricio
Battalion in the Mexican-American War.
During the Mexican-American War, when the United States wanted to expand,
hundreds of Irish and other immigrant soldiers decided to fight on the Mexican side.
Known as the San Patricio Battalion, they fought in the important battles of
Monterrey, Buena Vista, Cerro Gordo, and Churubusco. The San Patricios were
among the fiercest and most determined soldiers in the Mexican Army, fully committed
to their newly adopted country. As a result, the San Patricios hold a highly respected
place in Mexican history. This is their story.
