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.
