This book tells the story of Thomas Young, a real-life sixteen year-old who fought in the Revolution in the South Carolina upstate. Dr. Zeiss weaves a compelling tale of neighbor against neighbor as the Revolution in the back country was fought primarily between Patriots and Tories. The war was personal for these people, and personal scores were settled in the heat of battle. A must read for anyone, young or old, who wants to learn more about the southern campaigns of the Revolution.
