Johnson, Terry L.
Description As the summer of 1765 winds down, in this second book in the Young American Patriots series, the city of Boston heats up with revolutionary fever. Passage of the Stamp Tax in London makes everyone in town angry. Protests turn violent, and Ebenezer Mackintosh leads a mob to break into the British lieutenant governor’s house, destroying the family’s possessions. Young Will Northaway tries to see the difference between the fierce anger of Mackintosh and his followers and the eloquent calls for independence coming from Sam Adams. Both want to throw off British rule; so what’s the difference between these men and what they want for the American colonies? Will and his master leave Boston to escape the growing lawlessness, but soon trouble spreads to their new home, too. Through all of this, Will’s master is becoming a man of faith, and Will tries to decide what he thinks about his master’s God.
