William Hogeland gives us stories of the American Revolution and the Declaration of Independence that few of us have heard, including the critical days of May 1776 when mechanics, small shop keepers and privates in the militia banded together with John and Samuel Adams to demand, not just an end to taxation by the British, but a form of democratic government in which ordinary people would have the vote.  Working people brought off the critical change in Pennsylvania's legislature that eventually led to July 4th, and changed history.
