Life is peaceful in the Moravian town of Bethlehem until the War of Independence breaks out. The Congress orders Bethlehem to house prisoners of war. And the General Hospital of the Continental Army is set up there. When the British occupy the capital city of Philadelphia, 700 supply wagons arrive in Bethlehem.

Although the Moravians do not believe in war, they want to help their country in peaceful ways. They cheerfully give up their buildings to house wounded soldiers and give food and clothing to the hungry army.

It is the beginning of exciting times for Kate and her young cousin, Andrew. With their Indian friend, Brother Aaron, they help an escaped Hessian drummer boy avoid capture by the American guards. And the young Marquis de Lafayette, a French nobleman who brought a ship and sailed to the colonies to help in the fight for freedom, comes to Bethlehem to recuperate from his wounds.
