In 1775, fifteen-year-old John Greenwood sets off for Boston to try to reunite with his parents there. The American Revolution is underway, and by the time this fife player reaches the outskirts, the city has been closed off. John enlists as a fifer to fight with the colonists, and his experiences teach him much about the meaning of courage.
