Benjamin Franklin enlists the help of young people to record the happenings leading up to and during the Revolution for his newspaper the Pennsylvania Gazette. First, there is a James Hiller, a patriot who tends to act before he thinks and is, at times, too quick a judge in his search for American heroes. Next is Henri, a French orphan who's only quest is for food. Lastly, a young woman named Sarah Phillips joins the team; the daughter of an ex-English general with strong views opposing slavery. Together, they travel the colonies witnessing the sacrifices made for freedom.

What hit me?
You'll never take me alive!
Take you? Where?
To... wherever Indians take people.
I'm not no Indian!
It's 'I'm not AN Indian, not 'I'm not NO Indian!' Who taught you grammar?
