Teaser Tuesdays 08.18.09

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:

*Grab your current read.
*Open to a random page.
*Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
*BE CAREFUL NOT TO USE SPOILERS.
*Include the title and author so others can add it to their TBR list.

My Teaser:

But from this point on, the citizen-soldiers of Washington's army were no longer to be fighting only for the defense of their country, or for their rightful liberties as freeborn Englishmen, as they had at Lexington and Concord, Bunker Hill and through the long siege at Boston. It was now a proudly proclaimed, all-out war for an independent America, a new America, and thus a new day of freedom and equality.

From pg: 136 of 1776 by David McCullough.

What a great teaser! Even though I'm Canadian -- kind of with the guys Washington was fighting against, ha! -- the teaser gave me goosebumps. Very dramatic.

My own teaser is at Bookishgal.
