From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-These accessible biographies offer a balance of facts about the notable deeds and human shortcomings of their subjects. For example, Allen is described as heroic but crude, headstrong, and not the best husband or father. The narratives are generally lively, but much of the information presented has been simplified. This does not present particular problems in Marion as the documentation on his life is limited. However, in Hancock, the discussions of his many political positions and responsibilities may confuse some readers. While the information in all the books is accurate for the most part, Gaines credits the Americans with defeating the British at Bunker Hill. Boxed text provides additional information and insight into the period in all three books. Well-placed color reproductions are accompanied by captions closely related to the text. Unfortunately, the titles and artists are omitted in the picture credits.-Carolyn Janssen, Children's Learning Center of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH
