Excellent book! This is a non-fiction story that reads like a novel. A peek into a period in American history that many have forgotten or never known about, with many details about the war and anarchists of the time. The characters bring the tale to life. A great read for anyone, especially history buffs, a must-read for Bostonians.

Interestingly presented history. One of those bits that usually miss the more common history books yet has quite a bearing on our history.
