A Spy at Ticonderoga by Clavin Fisher

In the spring of 1775, Noah Phelps & a small group of patriots from the Simsbury (Connecticut) Committee of Safety set out to capture the cannon of Fort Ticonderoga. The group eventually joined with Ethan Allen & his Green Mountain Boys on the historic expedition. The action of Captain Noah Phelps in spying on the fort & gaining advance information assured the success of the attack. The cannon were responsible for driving the British out of Boston early in the Revolutionary War. Against the backdrop of these historic events, we have the fictional story of fourteen-year-old David Holcomb who comes to live with his uncle, Noah Phelps, after his father is killed by the British at Concord Bridge. David, who has vowed to avenge his fathers death, earns his place in the expedition to Fort Ticonderoga by securing secret information from a Tory prisoner at Newgate. Enroute to the fort, David shares adventures with an Indian boy who is a drummer for a militia company. When Noah volunteers to spy on the fort, David accompanies him to throw the British off guard. Through his eagerness to gain information, David is imprisoned at the fort, but manages to redeem himself in an exciting climax.
