Read this when we were reenacting. Two orphaned young brothers growing up during the War Between the States are faced with having to choose whether to fight for their homeland or sit out the war as poor farmers. Their decision will ultimately cause them to understand the faithfulness of God, the cost of the South to defend States Rights, and about themselves. Being a true account of these brothers makes this book even better for me.

I love this book! It's not a great work of literature but I always love rereading it. Especially the part involving a beard, some food, and some ants... :D

An easy read - written for tweens, I think. Great story that gives some insight into what is was like to be a boy during the Civil War.

This was always a favorite of mine. My mum found it at a book sale ages ago and my siblings and I devoured it. It's a short, action packed story with plenty of hilarious scenes. The characters are really likeable and you'll fall in love with them by the second page.

Almost overlooked this gem, which was one of the minor recommendations on the Veritas list. Low-budget printing and uninspiring cover art on my edition, but I loved this fictionalized history of two brothers serving in the Confederate Army. It leaves out all of the politics of the Civil War, and just presents a great story of bravery and heroism, loyalty and redemption. Two thumbs up. Very satisfying.

I enjoy reading about the Confederates, and loved this book. My brothers were also required to read it for school, and took it with the bored attitude they do most readers. But this was different. They loved it and wished for more! Highly recommended. Educational, and a great story!
