Rise to Rebellion: A Novel of the American Revolution, by Jeff Shaara. Ballantine Books. 448 pages. $26.95. More than two centuries after the American Revolution, biographies of John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and other members of the founding generation fill the bookstores. Many read less like academic tomes than historical novels, with vivid characterizations, lively dialogue, and supposed glimpses into the subjects' souls. Jeff Shaara's Rising to Rebellion really is a novel of the pivotal years between the Boston Massacre in 1770 and the Declaration of Independence in 1776.

ROBERT Duvall sat in a chair on a Western Maryland farm. The day was overcast but warm, the ground on the farm slightly muddy from two days of rain. Duvall sported a white beard, white hair and the gray uniform of a Confederate general in the War Between the States. If he looked like Robert E. Lee, it's because he should have. Duvall is playing Lee in Ron Maxwell's production of Gods and Generals, a Civil War epic scheduled for release in late 2002. "I love it," Duvall said of playing Lee. "It's a great privilege.

THE LIGHTS dimmed in Washington's National Theatre as the seven-member Virginia Military Institute color guard ascended the stage. About 30 other VMI cadets followed the color guard. All snapped to attention when given the order, and an instrumental version of the national anthem rang through the theater. Most of those in attendance fervently sang the words as "The Star-Spangled Banner" wound to a conclusion. After the VMI cadets departed, two figures went up on the stage. The lanky one with the white hair and matching mustache may have been familiar to most.

BERLIN // Next month in Germany, more than 1 million visitors will marvel at world-class play during the World Cup soccer championship. They can also admire great art, stroll medieval town squares and savor some of the world's best beer. The World Cup offers great tourism opportunities as well as sport. The 12 host cities include perennial travel favorites Berlin, Cologne, Munich, Nuremberg and Hamburg. With as little as two or three spare hours before a game, visitors can take in Albrecht Durer's "Self-Portrait" in Munich's Alte Pinakothek art museum -- or try a crisp-roasted schweinshaxe, or ham hock, with sauerkraut and a cold pilsner from a centuries-old local brewery.

They loved Robert Duvall as Lt. Col. Bill Kilgore in Apocalypse Now when he confessed his affection for the smell of napalm in the morning and declared, "Charlie don't surf." So, many of the troops leaving Baltimore-Washington International Airport yesterday for their assignments in Operation Enduring Freedom were particularly excited to meet Duvall, who plays Gen. Robert E. Lee in Gods and Generals, which opens in theaters nationwide this month. Army Lt. Rick Murphy, a 34-year-old military police officer from Tampa, Fla., even asked Duvall to autograph a photo from his role in the Vietnam War classic.
