This was the best Civil War juvinile book I have read, and believe me, I have read many. The author goes into the subject in a way that a child could understand if they needed to read the book for a school project etc.. I found myself hooked into this book on the first sentence. The pictures added alot to the book and I thought the direct quotes from the soilder's diaries was great. This was a great book that even the youngest of children interested in this war could enjoy. There is violence in it, but as always, It can't be a Civil War book if there isn't any.

I thought that this book was exceptionally outstanding. As it stated some of the horiffic times that these men and very young boys had to go through to fight for thier land.
