My Brother Sam is Dead by James Lincoln Collier and Christopher Collier
Reviewed by Fallon D., Northwest Library
This book was really interesting. I have read a couple books on the Revolutionary War, but this one really illustrated that the Revolutionary War, just like any war, is not just two sided; the good guys and the bad guys. Naturally, because we are Americans, we think that the rebels had a just cause and did good things. But both sides stole from honest people, and all sorts of horrible things like tarring and feathering people.
I think everyone should read this book because it shows how war is more than what we think it is.
