Coming of Age Story set during the Revolutionary War. 1944 Newbery Medal winner and a popular reading assignment in American schools.

The title character is a super-talented apprentice silversmith from Boston whose bright future is apparently ruined when he burns his hand at work. In need of a new life, he befriends a boy named Rab and becomes swept up in the American independence movement.

Disney made The Film of the Book in The Fifties complete with an annoyingly catchy song about the Liberty Tree ("It's a tall old tree and a strong old tree"). It was actually originally intended as a Made for TV Movie, hence the low budget and no-name cast, but it ended up getting a theatrical release.
