In this chapter, Sam steals the Brown Bess from his father's tavern so he can use it in the war as he fights with the Patriots. The Rebel soldiers have gone to the tavern and demanded that Mr. Meeker give them the Brown Bess. When he says he doesn't have it, they beat him up. Tim is very very angry at Sam in this chapter. Do you think Tim was mad enough to shoot Sam with the rifle if Sam didn't overpower him when Tim grabbed the rifle?
