This gives an account of the beginning of the Revolutionary war. The sections are "First Blood--Lexington," "Baptism of Fire," & "Guns over Boston"

The story begins with Julie Samson wishing she were a little older or younger. She thought about escaping thru the window but she heard footsteps retreating from her door. She was trembling so badly that she could barely walk, let alone jump from her window! When she left in the morning to visit Rev. Kelly, Aaron Sampson suggested that he would have a marrying job soon. Philadelphia had new snow on the ground that Julie walked over to catch up with Rev. Kelly. They went to the cottage in back of Christ Church where Rev. Kelly asked his wife to make them tea. Mrs. Kelly reminded Zachariah that there was no tea. As they discussed the map he wanted made, he thought that Julie was attractive. After they finished with the map, Kelly asked what was bothering her. When she told him that her uncle wouldn't leave her alone, Kelly was half angry & half fearful. Silas Samson had been a good man and a loving father. Julie asked Kelly if he could convince her uncle to allow her to stay with the Kellys. After she left, Kelly told his wife of the problem. He could do nothing about it, but prayed because of his hatred for Samson that had to change.

For the next month everyone wanted maps, so Julie & her uncle were kept busy. Also, Aaron had gone over the details of the will with Will Spelling & discovered that he didn't have as strong a hold on the property as he thought. Both his & Julie's names were on the papers, & he was the junior partner. Later that night Sampson informed Julie that they would be getting married. Julie suggested that she'd give up her the portion of the shop & go live with the minister, but Sampson would have none of it. After he left her, Julie prayed & decided what to do. She packed her clothes & her Bible and left in the night.
