Summary What do you do when you see injustice unfolding? Do you stand and fight? People who do are often called traitors, agitators, or rabble-rousers. Yet these are the people who are often the driving force toward change. Throughout American history, people who worked to radically change society have been criticized, arrested, and even killed. Rebels and Revolutionaries explores the lives of five firebrands who used muskets and marches, boycotts and lawsuits in their struggle for justice.
