What's your favorite book for the Revolutionary War? (m)

I have a 9 year old 4th grader who will be seeing a living presentation from a Revolutionary war soldier on March 3rd. We have not done a lot of American history, so I need a good resource to go over with him in the next few weeks. Since I don't have much time, it needs to be on the shorter side and interesting. He needs to know about: German Hessians, Continental Congress, The battle of Princeton, the battle of Trenton, British occupation of NY and Philadelphia, King George III. etc.

I haven't used this particular title, but we did use The Civil War for Kids, and I thought it was excellent. It kind of alternated chapters between battle stuff and life and times stuff (how the soldiers lived, what it was like for the women at home, etc.). The coverage of the battles was pretty thorough. Like I said, I haven't used the Revolutionary War one, but if it is as good as the Civil War one, it might be a match!
