We continued marching on till about mid-afternoon. We saw a farm in the distance. Both Gen. Reily and Col. Hisslinger decided to check if the family there was Loyalists so that we could stay there for a couple days. So the Sergeant went up to the house door and asked if they would house the Kings soldiers. They answered that they would. Then the Sergeant told two of the soldiers that were closest to him to kill the pigs; which they did right away. We set up camp close to the field. We helped the wounded soldiers into the hospital tent. Then I went to the barn to wash up. I went to a barrel of water beside the barn and splashed water onto my face, when I looked up to blink I saw a soldier glance behind him at me. There was something familiar and comforting about seeing him that I can’t recognize. Then it suddenly came to me. It was Nathaniel!
I couldn’t believe it. We just fought our first battle together and we didn’t even know

So that was how I left Britain. I hope that everyone is doing fine back home. I arrived here in America or to t bed more exact: Virginia two days ago. The land out here is beautiful. Back in England we never had a lot of wildlife or farm land I just hope I has someone to share this beauty with.
I just got my first orders today. I’ am to patrol the small town that is close to camp. Col. Hisslinger has not told me how he wants a situation if one ever should come up should be handled. So three other soldiers and myself are on patrol have to think what would be the best way to handle one. Within a few minutes all four of us are ready for duty. We decided that each of us will patrol the town by each getting a corner of the town to walk through it till we all meet in the center of town. I have the west side.
As I started walking through the west side of town I knew that it was a lot different than Britain. The west side was where all the poor people were li

The regiment had friendly reached the New England. The trip over here was long and grueling. All I did on the ship was take orders, sleep, play cards with the other men and look out into the deep, blue ocean. When we got here some men dropped down on to the ground and kissed it since we have not seen land for some time.
As I looked up to the blue sky from the entrance of my tent this morning I wonder what my father is doing back home in England. The day after I got the letter I decided to tell my father the day that I leave. So on the day that I was to leave, as I was packing early that morning before breakfast my father came into the room. I knew that he senesced something was going on and he wanted to find out what was happening.
When he opened the door he was surprised to see me dressed in my uniform and a gun on the bed. I looked at him and did not say a thing to try to unnerve him. I finished packing and walked towards him and then stoppe

It’s been a long time. I have not seen or heard of anything from Anna. I do not even know where they took her. I have tried to find out information in my father’s room, but I never find any. I know my father will never give me any information. So I don’t bother any more with him. But it does not mean that I’ am giving up pursuing.
A lot of things have happened over the last eight years. Nathaniel joined a regiment and is being a journalist for a newspaper about the Revolutionary War; he sold his shop and has a few paintings left. My father still hasn’t found out about his real career. Arthur and I have finally become friends. I’ve gotten much stronger, taller and more mature than I was before. I still go to boot camp, but my father is forcing me to study law. There is one issue that I do not want to fix; my relationship with my father. I know that he sold Anna away to keep her away fr
age: 18 years old.
I used to be able to draw...I wish that I had my talent back of that, but I'm really rusty.
I love to write more than anything...well, I love music more though. I listen to nothing and everything.
Once I graduate I want to join Americorps or Community collegeor try to get into college with enough scholarships. I hope that I can find enough.
