Story Summary

Young Andrew MacPhail, Silent Scott, is one of the best scouts in Pennsylvania which makes it doubly shameful that he mistakenly walked into a British camp. But that proves to be the least of his worries. While being questioned by a British officer, George Washington himself appears across the clearing and Andrew has to think fast to distract his inquisitor.
