Description


It's 1916, and Europe is at war. Yet Margaret Singh, living an entire ocean away in California, is unaffected. Then the United States enters the war against Germany. Suddenly the entire country is up in arms against those who seem "un-American" or speak against the country's ally, Great Britain. When Margaret's father is arrested for his ties to the Ghadar Party, a group of Indian immigrants seeking to win India's independence from Great Britain, Margaret's own allegiances are called into question. But she was born in America and America itself fought to be freed from British rule. So what does it even mean to be American?

It's the storytellers that preserve a nation's history. But what happens when some stories are silenced? The I Am America series features fictional stories based on important historical events about people whose voices have been excluded, lost, or forgotten over time.
