Publisher's Summary

America's number-one radio talk-show host and multimillion-copy number-one New York Times best-selling author presents an audiobook for young listeners with a history teacher who travels back in time to have adventures with exceptional Americans.
It's the dawn of an important new day in America. Young listeners, grab the reins and join Rush Revere, Liberty the horse, and the whole time-traveling crew in this patriotic, historical adventure that takes you on an exciting trip to the past to see our remarkable nation's most iconic symbols up close and personal!
"Rush Revere here, along with my chatty horse, Liberty! Wait a minute.... Liberty? Where did he go?"
"Reporting for duty, Captain Revere!"
"Liberty, where did you get that spinach smoothie?"
*Slurp*
Well, he certainly didn't get it from 1787 - that's where we're rush, rush, rushing off to next with our enthusiastic young friends in the Time-Traveling Crew (but not before causing a major security incident at the National Archives in Washington, DC!) A funny case of mistaken identity and a wild chase through the busy streets of Philadelphia will lead us to the famously introverted father of our Constitution, James Madison, and the heated secret debates over the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Fast-forward a few years, and we'll help his brave wife, Dolley, risk her life to save an important portrait from the White House as the British set Washington afire!
What greater symbol of our exceptional nation's hard-won freedoms than the Star-Spangled Banner, sewn by American icon Betsy Ross? Perhaps Francis Scott Key can explain what inspired him to pay tribute to our glorious flag by writing our beautiful national anthem. But watch out for the bombs bursting in air, because when we reach 1814, we'll be front and center at a major battle to defend our liberty.

Rush Limbaugh's Vacation to Washington D.C.

Would you listen to Rush Revere and the Star-Spangled Banner again? Why?

No, I feel like I have experienced this adventure. It was a fun journey, but more time is spent in modern day than other books in the series.


Have you listened to any of Rush Limbaugh’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Rush Limbaugh's script reading sounds different than his normal speech on the radio. Over the series he has improved his flow. He now sounds a lot more familiar to his natural tone, and has found a new voice for Liberty (his talking horse)


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Historical accuracy began to confuse me only because of how all over the place the settings are. Unlike previous adventures we do not explore each event chronologically in history. This impulse driven narrative and my lack of attention forced me to rewind at points from pure confusion not of what was going on but how we got there.Still the same appreciation is felt for the deep sacrifices and determination by truly exceptional Americans at testing times- like with the Pilgrims.


Any additional comments?

Previously I admired the Rush Revere series for exploring uncommon parts of American history. I was excited for the War of 1812 to get the Rush Revere treatment but unfortunately I do not feel it did justice to the exceptional era. We spent more time in modern day than the past and less time in that period than other historical events explored in the book.
