Went threw the town of Redding. Which is where the

Meeker's live. They where going door to door. Taking

peoples guns and goods. When they came to the Tavern

they where demanding for there gun. They wouldn't believe

that there son stole it and took it with him to the Rebel's

camp and they wouldn't believe him cause it was Tori

territory and that they where threatening to kill Life if they

didn't give them there gun. Then Tim ran out the door and he

ran to go get Colonel Read. Since he knew that Sam was a

Rebel and colonel read was a colonel for the Rebel's, but

when he got to where he was he saw Sam with the Gun

sleeping with it. Then he snatched it and started running back

to his house and when he was half way there Sam woken up

and was yelling him to stop but he wouldn't stop, but since

Sam was older and bigger he caught Tim right as they reach

the town of Redding. Then Tim had to explain what had

happen and Sam didn't want to go back but he went with

Tim just in cas...

... middle of paper ...

... was a well written book it

was very detail and good storywriter but the end didn't have

a big enough bain. Like it just made it like a dull ending but

all the way up to where Tim goes crazy on the Rebel's. He

also kind of fueled you which is kinda good when u first read

this tittle you think the British killed Sam when it was

Rebel's. what kinda sucked about it is that they dragged out

to the end. which made you know what's going to happen

when ending came. that's why it was so dull cause I was on

the last page and Sam still hasn't been killed yet so I knew

right away what was going to happen. Recommendations: I

would recommend this if you want to study the sight affects

of the war. but if your like me and you're proud to be an

American, Patriot, or a Rebel then I wouldn't read this it

talks about how bad it was for the Rebel's to go war for no

good reason. When in fact it was cause later we became the

greatest country in the whole wide world. Everything about

this country is so much better than anything else so that's

why IM proud to be an American. Copyrights: 1974 to
