I read this book like 6 years ago as a kid, its about a teenager in a small town. He lives on a farm with some other siblings and his parents. He wants to enlist in the militia but his dad wont let him. He enlists any way and goes immediatly into a battle. Hes with his militia and their waiting at a road. Upahead the red coats come,(i kind of remember the enemys being mercenaries hired by the british). They all line up and kill most of the militia. The boy runs away to a river but he is chased by some of the enemy. I dont remember next, but later on in the book he stumbles across a farm, he sees the bodies of a family there, (the teen describes what he sees and talks about their purple tungs). Then some more stuff happens i dont rremember and he eventually gets home to apologize to his dad. (I dont remember or not if it was this book or not but my teaacher said it took place over one day). I read it in 5th grade. Thanks for anyone that can find it.
