Young schoolteacher Benjamin Tallmadge--with his trusty horse Highlander--enlist in George Washington's army to partake in the Battle of Long Island during the American Revolution. Tallmadge, spurred by the cry for freedom at Lexington and Concord, sacrifices his career and his dreams to join Washington's army. Tallmadge and Highlander face fiery combat at the Battle of Long Island in August 1775. The young man grapples with the realities of being a soldier--the blasts of cannons, the smell of gunpowder, the relentlessness of the enemy. Will the battered Americans escape from Brooklyn unhurt? Selene Castrovilla has woven Benjamin Tallmadge's own account, along with details from primary-source documents and extensive research, into this thrilling narrative of one of American history's most harrowing moments.
