I liked the book Long Knife by James Alexander Thom. It is the story of George Rogers Clark, the older brother of William Clark (Lewis and Clark expedition).
Thom also wrote From Sea to Shining Sea about Lewis and Clark. I also thought that was a good book.
Citizen Washington - William Martin
Dark Eagle: A Novel of Benedict Arnold and the American Revolution - John Ensor Harr
Shadowbrook: A Novel of love, War, and the birth of America - Beverly Swerling
Love and Honor - Randall Wallace - This one covers the events leading up to the American Revolution
If you're interested in any non-fiction, these two books are very readable.
1776 - David McCullough
The First Salute: A View if the Am Revolution - Barbara W. Tuchman
Oh,,,how could I have forgotten the Jeff Shaara books?!
The Glorious Cause and Rise to Rebellion, both great books!

His Excellency George Washington was a good read.
I have 1776, but haven't read it yet.
I also really liked the Interpreter by Robert Moss and Firekeeper, also by Robert Moss - It's set in the Revolutionary period, but it also deals with the Mohawk Indian tribes. I love these.
