Summary
Fourteen-year-old Johnny Tremain, an apprentice silversmith with a bright future ahead of him, injures his hand in a tragic accident, forcing him to look for other work. In his new job as a horse-boy, riding for the patriotic newspaper, The Boston Observer, and as a messenger for the Sons of Liberty, he encounters John Hancock, Samuel Adams, and Dr. Joseph Warren. Soon Johnny is involved in the pivotal events shaping the American Revolution from the Boston Tea Party to the first shots fired at Lexington
Summary
When a fourteen-year-old silversmith apprentice is severely burned by molten silver, he becomes a dispatch rider for the Committee for Public Safety where he meets many Boston patriots involved in the new struggle for independence from England. There he learns that he may be able to overcome his handicap enough to join the fight
