In the British colonies of North America there arose a band of brave men and women who forged a free and independent nation. Their names live on today, as does their legacy, and we proudly call them Patriots. Boston, 1773. This thriving seaport is the center of activity for the American rebels. Fiery speeches by Sam Adams and James Otis fuel the growing flames of liberty. A secret band of patriots plans defiant actions to protest the Crown's injustices. It is a heady time for young Daniel Reed to be purseing his education in Boston. While he cloaks his insurrectionist sympathies with caution, his teenage brother, Quincy, rushes headlong into freedom's fight. Two events will soon change Daniel's life forever: his brother's participation in the Boston Tea Party and his chance meeting with the beautiful Roxanne Darragh, who will stir more than the dream of independence within him.
