My Brother Sam Is Dead

This story takes place during the Revolutionary War. Timothy's family were tories which means that they supported King George III taxing the colonists but Tim's brother Sam hated the taxes. He was a patriot and decided to join the colonists army. After coming back to visit his home, he was tied up in a stealing incident. Can Tim save his brother?

     This is a famous historical fiction book. You can tell from the title that this book is laced with tradegy but nevertheless, this book is very good. You'll probably end up reading it in school.
