In this Flintpunk tale, the minutemen of the American Revolution are not exactly as we remember them from grade school, and the British with their fighting corpsemen are the stuff of nightmares.

A young minuteman blessed with the power of the surge is able to take on a score of lobsterbacks alone with his brace of tomahawks -- until one of the living redcoats wields an unknown weapon against him.
