Born into circumstance beyond their control, these children of the Confederacy found themselves face to face with empty fields and kitchens, fathers and brothers who never came home, and lives cut far too short.
this collection of true accounts presents the voices of those who have so rarely been heard: the teenaged amputee and the not-yet-grown-up prisoner of war. Finally, readers can experience what it was like to be barely twenty years old and spy or a young woman who was responsible for leading a general. A riveting look at the Civil War through the eyes of emerging adults, this book is unlike any other in scope and subject.
