When I saw the cover and saw the title, I felt sure I had read this when I was younger. I don't remember the contents. The 3 rating derives from the fact I like this title. It's haunting and made an impression on me when I was younger. It might be good for me to pick this up again and look through it if I run across a copy. ( )

Sam enlists in the Rebel army during the Civil War and this decision is difficult for his father to comprehend because he stands with staying loyal to the British. While his brother is away fighting, Tim has to decide what side he stands on when it comes to the war. Their father ends up dying leaving Tim the man of the house while Sam is away fighting in the war. At the end, Sam does die leaving the family down to two. ( )

A well-researched and written look at war and how it affects the local community. The subject matter was sobering, but worth reading for mature pre-teens and up. ( )

I love historical fiction for its ability to teach history through an interesting story rather than a dry textbook. This book does a great job of depicting the rift that occurred in families as people chose sides in the American Revolution. You had the Loyalists who supported Great Britain and the Patriots who supported independence. The Meeker family is torn by this conflict. Young Tim's dad is a loyalist, but his big brother Sam supports independence from Great Britain. When Sam decides to go fight with the revolutionaries, his dad is crushed.

Unfortunately, as the story unfolds we begin to see a dark side of humanity that goes deeper than fighting a war for a cause. When Tim and his dad go on a long trip to sell their meat, they are attacked by cowboys disguised at Patriots trying to prevent food from getting to the British. In reality they are thieves using the war for their personal gain. Further darkness is depicted when Sam returns home for a visit only to find himself accused of stealing his own cattle when he chases down the real thieves. As the title foreshadows, he is executed not by the enemy, but the very side he is fighting for.

Many kids have written negative reviews about this book. In my opinion, they tend to focus on the wrong points to criticize. My recommendation to teachers who assign this book is to be sure to guide the discussion so kids can debate their interpretations. When that happens people tend to change their negative view. ( )

Summary:
During the revolutionary war 2 brothers discover the division in the family and ton over the political upheaval of the war.

Personal Reaction:
A thought provoking book showing that families are not always agree of the discussions of the government and thier decisions.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1. Aid in class discussions of the war and the events
2. Could be relevant to current events and families that are involved in the war.
3. Could show students that not all members of a family agree, as well as aid in children that may not have a family member involved in the war have empathy. ( )

My Brother Sam Is Dead
My Brother Sam Is Dead Is about two brothers named Tim and Sam. Sam left to join the Continental Army because his dad yelled and screamed at him. He got tired of getting yelled at and ran away. His father disliked the army he went to. Their family was making a descent living at the time. Sam came home one day and visited his family for a couple of hours, but his father pleased to see him but lectured him about the Army he was at. Sam left and said his goodbyes. A few days after Sam’s leave an old wise man gave Tim a letter to give to Sam’s chief. So Tim was on his way when he meets with Sam’s girlfriend she got very curious and asked Tim to open it, but Tim kept his promise he gave to the old wise man. She tackled Tim and took the letter and opened it and found out it was his plan all that time. Well wants Tim came home from his long journey his dad told everyone that he was going to round up the Cattle and take them down to an old selling place to sell them to the British. Tim wanted to go with his dad but said no. After a few days of begging his dad he finally let in. They rode their horses down to the selling place. While they were riding they met with some mean cowboys that threatened to shoot Tim’s dad. They told Tim to go wait in a field. They let Tim’s father pass and they carried on. They stayed at one of Tim’s dad’s closest friend that he used to hang out with. On the journey back they met with the cowboys again but this time they took Tim’s dad and put him on a prison boat. Tim had to ride the trip back. Once he told his mother she was devastated at what happened. A few days later they found out that the Father died from poisonous gas most of all prisoners died. A week or so Sam came back home and was disgusted at what the cowboys did to his father. His Army stayed in groups one in a church and others in people’s houses. Sam and Tim met in the church and broke down and cried. Later on Sam came to visit his parents. They heard a weird noise and I came from the barn. They sprinted out to the barn and noticed that one of the cows were dead and all the meat was gone from it. Well Sam got accused for taking the cow and was put in prisons and was to get hung. Tim ran down to the county police department and told them the story but they wouldn’t take his word because he was only a 12 year old boy. So the mother marched down and told them but yet again they didn’t believe her. After that Tim tried to save his brother but was shot multiple times. But Tim believes that his brother was a brave solider and died for something that he didn’t do.
