It’s Summer 1814. A British Fleet moves inexorably up the Chesapeake Bay in order to punish the American people and sap their desire to continue the “Second War of Independence.” Among the gallant defenders of their nation’s capitol are a young fisherman who casts his lot with the Joshua Barney and his flotilla. In “Commodore Barney’s Young Spies” you will travel with Amos Grout as he spies on the invaders and witnesses every aspect of the campaign from Benedict to Bladensburg and Fort Washington. Otis’s text is accessible and exciting, his characters likeable and familiar and his history thorough and accurate. Through Amos he brings the trials and terrors of war home in way young readers can appreciate and that textbooks cannot match. A great introduction to The War of 1812 in Maryland.
