Johnny Fraser lives on a farm in North Carolina during the late 1700's. He is content on the farm but his family sends him away for his education. War is the farthest thing from his mind. He knows that there is a disagreement between America and England but he does not think about it much. He journeys to England on family business and war breaks out while he is there. Now Johnny has to make a major decision. Should he stay in England or should he return to America? On which side does his loyalty lie? Read DRUMS to find out.
