Description
0rion Howe was just thirteen years old when he stole away from his Chicago home and traveled alone to Mississippi to join his father and younger brother's Union regiment. He received a Medal of Honor for his heroism on the battlefield at Vicksburg.Young Miles Moore was a drummer boy for the famous 54th Massachusetts Infantry, one of the early black regiments formed during the Civil War. He helped the wounded when his regiment bravely led the attack on Battery Wagner.Against the advice of his general, nineteen-year-old Confederate soldier Richard Kirkland risked his life to help wounded enemy soldiers on the battlefield. His act of compassion sparked a truce at Fredericksburg.In this book, you will see the faces and hear the stories of forty-nine young people, appearing for the first time in one volume. There are soldiers and spies, drummers and buglers, a future president, and six youngsters presented with the Medal of Honor. Some were boys, some were girls, some died, and some survived. But all were young, and all have a story to tell.Known, for his "accurate, well-researched historical fiction" (ALA "Booklist), distinguished Civil War historian and author G. Clifton Wisler gives a face to the war that divided our nation.
