The classic story of one family torn apart by the Revolutionary War

All his life, Tim Meeker has looked up to his brother Sam. Sam's smart and brave -- and is now a part of the American Revolution. Not everyone in town wants to be a part of the rebellion. Most are supporters of the British -- including Tim and Sam's father.
With the war soon raging, Tim know he'll have to make a choice -- between the Revolutionaries and the Redcoats . . . and between his brother and his father.

Ned ("Sam Smith's Negro" (p.133) fighting against the British is beheaded with a sword:
"There are some damned blacks in here, what shall we do with them?"
"Kill them,"...He slid his sword into Ned's stomach, and then jerked it free. Ned staggered around, still raising his gun up for the shot. The sword flashed in a bright arc, the fastest thing I ever saw move. Ned's head jumped off his body and popped into the air....I vomited all over myself." (pg 144-145)

The captain was "blown in half by a cannon ball...blew him in half, right into two pieces with his guts dangling out of both parts." page 173
