My Brother Sam Is Dead tells the story of a boy, Timothy (called Tim), who lives in Redding, Connecticut during the Revolutionary War. His brother, Sam, is a soldier for the revolutionaries although he is going against his father, who is a Loyalist. An argument between Sam and his Father eventually drives Sam away, and his family does not hear from him until later on in the story. During that time, the war begins to penetrate Redding, starting with Sam and eventually leading up to Tim's father's capture and death on a prison ship. Continental soldiers take camp in Redding under the orders of General Putnam. Sam is part of these troops so he comes home to see his girlfriend and to retrieve his father's gun, a Brown Bess. Some other soldiers frame Sam as a cow thief in order to save themselves, and Sam is sentenced to be executed. Tim tries as hard as he can to change the general's mind, but to no avail. Later, he is sentenced to death where he is shot twice.
