Iron Scouts of the Confederacy
There are plenty of books about the Civil war, highlighting major battles and heroes, but few tell of the day-to-day struggles of "ordinary" people. This stirring novel tells of two teen-age brothers who fought, not for slavery, but for their home, the South. When an unexpected visitor drops in, Gant and his younger brother, Ben, decide to join the army. Or, at least in Ben's case, try. Even though he is 14, he is so short almost everybody believes he's only 10! Finally, he is accepted as an Iron Scout. Ride along with Ben Fane as he meets war, the excitement of a successful raid, the disappointment of losing a battle, and the constant fear of being captured. Adventure you'll never forget.
