Summary (From the publisher):

America comes of age -- as seen through the eyes of its young founders...

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal..."

On his farm in Maryland, sixteen-year-old Caleb Jacobson waits anxiously for news from Boston: rumors have it that colonials are staging an armed rebellion against the oppressive tyranny of King George III of England and his soldiers. War! Caleb longs to join the volunteer army of General Washington and win the fight for freedom, but he is torn between loyalty to his fellow colonials and his race. Caleb is a free black living in a slave state. He knows firsthand the horrors and hardships of slavery and wonders what good an American victory will do if his fellow blacks remain shackled in bondage. Then comes news that the British Governor Lord Dunmore promises freedom to any slave who joins his army against the Americans. Can he be trusted to keep his word?

Caleb will have to choose.
