Thursday Tech Tip Linky and Historical Fiction book titles needed

I'm linking up with Fern Smith's Thursday Tech Tip linky.  Check out this week's fantastic technology tips.

Fern Smith's Thursday's Tech Tips for 
Teachers

I'm also getting ready to start some historical fiction book clubs. All you upper elementary/middle school teachers - any favorites that are set during the Colonial and Revolutionary War time periods?

This is what I've used over the past few years, but I'd love some new options.
Midnight Rider by Joan Hiatt Harlow


Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson


Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson

 

Forge by Laurie Halse Anderson

 

My Brother Sam is Dead by James Lincoln Collier 

Phoebe the Spy by Judith Griffin

 

Revolutionary War on Wednesday by Mary Pope Osborne
(For my struggling readers)

 
I would love some new suggestions!  What are your favorites????  Any new ones that I don't know about yet?

    1. Love Sign of the Beaver, I've read it aloud a few times but never used it for book clubs. Good idea!
