The Matchlock Gun by Walter D. Edmonds (1998-11-23)
Edward has been left at home to protect his mother and sister, while his father is away watching for a raid from the north. Both the French and the Indians are true threats in New York in 1756, but Edward has a weapon -- his father’s matchlock gun. Note: Edward’s mother is injured in the book, and Native Americans are killed.
