Revolutionary Love Story Line

    When I was a freshman in high school, I created a story that had to do with the American Revolution. In most stories, the writers pick either the winning or losing side's point of view. In this story, I chose to do it from the point of view of the people who did not pick sides during the Revolution. Thought that would be something different to write about. I like to write with all sides of the story in mind.
      Revolutionary Love is the story of Elizabeth Hancock and William McMichael. Elizabeth is a 16 year who is visiting her cousin in Concord, Mass. when she finds a British soldier. Much to her uncle's dismay, she brings the soldier back to the house. Later, she learns that the soldier is from Whales and is serving in the British army because he felt like it was his duty to do so.
       For the rest of the war, they maintain a great friendship. Soon after the war, they court and get married. Elizabeth's mother's cousin John Adams, does not like William because he is British. There will be a conflict that comes out of that but I am not sure what that is yet.
