                  If anyone wants to know, it is a historical fiction book about the American Revolution. And it's NOT boring, for anyone who hates reading about people from the past. In one scene from the book, Rebels from the Patriot side come up to the Meeker's tavern and threaten the dad to give his gun or else they'll kill him. The problem was, they didn't have the gun because Sam took it from them and ran off the fight with the Patriots. Tim's the main character.
