ALA Booklist and School Library Journal recommended, Multiple Award-winning Author!

Nathaniel Dunn is an indentured servant on a colonial Virginia plantation. He is sold to meet his master's debts and bought by a kindly schoolmaster named Basil, who helps him get work with a carriage maker. But as Nathaniel's luck turns for the better, the atmosphere in the country turns for the worse.

Public outcry against the British becomes commonplace, and the call "give me liberty, or give me death" grows into a budding revolution. Amidst a new world of philosophy, books, and the idea of equality, Nathaniel faces new questions and uncertainty . . . should he join this fight against Britain's oppression and taxes?

His old plantation friend, the slave Moses, has joined the British Royal Ethiopian Regiment to earn his freedom. Nathaniel joins the Virginia Regiment.  What will become of either of them, indentured servant and slave in this war? As his mother always taught him from Corinthians, "Love hopes all things."

"Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." Corinthians 13:6-7

    Exactly what I was looking for

    Posted by Shannon L. on 2nd Apr 2016

    This study guide is exactly what I was looking for! It is so thorough, including writing, vocabulary, literature analysis, and questions we are using for discussion amongst my two kids who are using it. It was a great supplement to our Revolutionary War study. I will definitely be purchasing more Progeny Press study guide.
