Product Details


Kirkus Reviews
“Richly detailed and well paced, the story provides both well-developed characters and plenty of suspense and gore. For those who like to know the facts behind historical fiction, the author provides historical notes and selected sources. An appealing Civil War title for readers with strong stomachs.”

School Library Journal
“This is a fair and informative look at the role of young people in the conflict. The depictions of medicine and nursing are grim and believable, and the cruel treatment of slaves is evident, although graphic descriptions are kept to a minimum.”

Library Media Connection
“Schwabach has clearly done her research; her details are rich and she includes historical notes and a bibliography. This would be an excellent classroom supplement to Civil War studies. Recommended.
