  • Sam!!!!
  • Stop playing soldier boy Sam and close that door!
  • Who's side are you on Tim, Great Britain's or the American's?
  • We can't have your cattle in British stomach's!!
  • The year is in the 1776 when the Revolutionary War Started in the Colonies. Tim Meeker is torn between the war as his father is a Loyalist and his older Brother, Sam Meeker, is a Patriot fighting in the Continental Army.
  • I'll take over with you since Sam is gone and Father was captured.
  • So Tim now has to make a choice, become a Patriot and fight against Great Britain, or fight with Great Britain as a Loyalist. But that's not the only thing Tim has to worry about because Tim now wants to go with his father to Verplanks when Sam usually goes.
  • Their going to execute me for stealing my own cattle!! This is outrageous!!
  • Well I'll try to stop the execution.
  • As Tim goes with his father as a neutralist, they get pulled over by Cow-boys a couple times, because the cattle might be sold to the British. Then It started to snow so Tim's Father scouted ahead, only to be captured, leaving Tim to try and make a choice.
  • These soldiers will be executed for their crimes against their country and their fellow soldiers.
  • Tim's father was captured and put on an American prison ship, but a few weeks later there was a cholera outbreak on board and Tim's Father dies. Then the Continental army comes to Redding and Tim was finally able to see Sam.
  • Tim finally goes to see Sam, but when Sam goes home to see his mother, a pair of people started stealing Tim's last cattle.Sam tries to stop them, but instead of catching them, they framed him of doing the deed. Sam then goes to jail for being framed of stealing.
