Book Review: First Martyr of Liberty: Crispus Attucks in American Memory

“Dead men make such convenient heroes.”

Stars: 4/5

Very good (3.5 - 4 stars). Well researched. Unfortunately, there just isn't a lot of information on Crispus Attucks, which has allowed inaccuracies and rampant suppositions to seep into the historical narrative of this man. Kachun sets the record straight. As an honest broker, Kachun keeps a vetted biographical framework intact as he traverses from 1770s to present day; debunking falsehoods and speculation to produce a reliable profile of the man whose death sparked a revolution.
