A ground-level look at colonial America and the War for Independence through the eyes of the common man.

Rebels: "A Well-Regulated Militia":
This is 1775. With the War for Independence playing out across the colonies, young Seth and Mercy Abbott find their new marriage tested at every turn as the demands of the frontlines and the home front collide. Not merely rehashing the tales of the most famous men of the time, Rebels details the epic story of the colonists, explorers and traders, wives and daughters, farmers and volunteer soldiers who, in a few short, turbulent years, created the brand-new nation of America.

Rebels: "These Free And Independent States":
In 1775, Seth Abbott picked up his rifle and helped his fellow Americans win their independence.  In 1794, his savant son John comes of age as the new nation faces threats on multiple fronts: terror from the Barbary states, a growing danger from Britain, and intense political division at home.  When Congress authorizes the building of the famous "six frigates' and America's first navy, young John Abbott embarks on a tense, exciting course from the hustle bustle of the Boston shipyards to the War of 1812.
