Rush Limbaugh Stories for Children:
Time-Travel to the American Revolution on their Magic Horse, Liberty
We’re so excited about this. We have so much profound awe and respect for the US military. The book is dedicated to them, and intertwined in the American history portions of the story is a modern-day story about families and how they deal with deployment and how the children of military families deal with it. Now, it’s a very tough thing, and we’re really excited about this. We can’t wait for people to read this.
We think it’s gonna resonate with everybody. But we really, really want it to resonate with the military people for whom we have so much awe and a building, ongoing respect for everything they do and have done. It’s just a little… The story is about one of the students at the school where Rush Revere substitute teaches, and he’s one of the time travelers. In this story, his father deploys. This character’s name is Cam, and his father is deployed to Afghanistan.
Cam knows enough to know that his father’s off defending the country, but he just doesn’t understand why for so long and why his dad has to go, and he learns all kinds of lessons in his time travels back to actual events in the fight in the American Revolution. It has brought tears to some people’s eyes who have read very rare and very exclusive advanced manuscripts and copies of it. So we’re really excited for people to actually have it in their hands.
He’s a young student who time travels with Rush Revere and Liberty, whose father in the military, in the book, is deployed to Afghanistan, and Cam doesn’t understand it. That’s one of the themes in the book, because the book’s dedicated to the military. In a lot of ways, it’s a tribute to the United States Military, all branches. By the same token, the present day theme in the book is about this young man’s awakening and realization of what a hero his father is, on a par with the heroes of the American founding. This character, Cam, comes to realize the greatness of his father by time traveling back into American history and meeting General George Washington on the eve of one of his battles.
Rush Revere and the American Revolution
Join us on this incredible time-travel adventure! Liberty, my wisecracking horse, our old friends Cam, Tommy, Freedom, and I are off to meet some super-brave soldiers in the year 1775. Yep, that’s right. We’ll be visiting with the underdog heroes who fought for American independence, against all odds—and won! But not before eight very real years of danger and uncertainty.
Be a part of Rush Revere’s crew as we rush, rush, rush into a time when British rule had become a royal pain, and rebellion was in the air. We’ll be on hand to see two lanterns hung in the Old North Church, prevent a British spy from capturing Paul Revere, and grapple with danger at the battles of Lexington, Concord, and Bunker Hill.
The extra-special part of this trip is that right here in the twenty-first century, Cam’s dad is a soldier fighting in Afghanistan, and Cam has been pretty angry that he is away. Visiting with exceptional American heroes like Dr. Joseph Warren and George Washington, racing along after Paul Revere on his midnight ride, and seeing the Declaration of Independence signed make Cam see his own dad in a new and special way.
But don’t worry. Along with the danger, excitement, and patriotism, there will still be time to stop for a delicious spinach, oats, and alfalfa smoothie. No, wait—that one’s for Liberty. The kids and I voted for strawberries. Now let’s open the magic portal to the past!
