Included in Book Three, A Captive in Williamsburg, General Washington has just expressed his wishes to get the British out of Boston and is sending militiamen up to Massachusetts along with supplies, the state of Virginia is facing a bit of trouble from the British in the form of the Governor who is planning to invade Virginia’s soil with his Army of Redcoats.
Lord Dunmore, said Governor, has set up base in Norfolk, VA on a ship in the harbor. He is planning to ask England for a large fleet of ships with which to invade Virginia’s coastal towns. Andrew Hendricks is back in Williamsburg and is getting ready to ride to Norfolk with a very important letter to the 2nd Regiment that will help them to win an upcoming battle with the British at a place called Great Bridge. He is thwarted on the way by British spies and is able to avoid them in order to reach the Regiment and give the commander his message. This turns out to be another rout for the Colonists who really know how to fight with their wits and don’t have to wear Red Coats and march in a straight line.
And, back in Williamsburg, Sarah is in trouble and about to be kidnapped by British spies and delivered to the Governor’s ship as a prisoner of war.
Quill says: These books are a rare find and tell the story of the beginning of the American Revolution in the author’s fascinating storytelling. Life in Colonial America in the 1700’s leading up to the Continental Congress and the appointment of General George Washington to take the Americans to victory are written in great detail and would be a perfect teaching tool for young people.
