  • “This was a horrific war that reached out to every US citizen in some way but to see it through a child’s eyes was a very different experience and a very impressive one. It gives insight into the real experience.”

    - Iris A. Coffin, Amazon.com Review

  • “Viewing the war from a child’s perspective, a member of the army no less, gave me a new understanding of what really went on during the Civil War.”
