      I survived the American Revolution, 1776
      Summary:The battlefield was soaked in blood. Screams of injured soldiers rang through the air. Eleven-year-old Nathaniel Knox knelt behind a rock, his gun clutched in his shaking hands. Nate had been heading to New York City to find his father. But now he was trapped in a terrible gunfight between American and British troops. — But King George was like a snake with America gripped in his fangs – and he didn’t want to let go. So now it was war – brutal, bloody war. And America was being crushed by the mighty British army. Thousands of American troops were either dead or dying in filthy British prison ships. General George Washington’s army was in tatters. All Nate wanted was to find his father … and to get out of here alive.
