Hi my name is Isabel something weird happened today. I was walking my cow and was holding my cat then I saw some soldiers walking by a I saw a flag from the south. It seemed like they were all mad. I ran back home and mom told me to go and feed the chickens. I looked over and saw mom starring at me. After I was done feeding the chickens I went to the chicken coup and I was getting the chicken eggs out of the baskets. I turned around because I heard a rustling noise. I looked at the corn field. I stood there for quite a wile but at that moment when I was about to turn around I saw a eye in the corn field watching me. Then the eye got bigger. Then I ran with my cat princes as fast as I could to the house. When I got to the house I pressed up against the house and I forgot that I had the eggs in my hand and I dropped them on the floor and they all broke. I knew that mother was going to be furious but I didn't care right now because I was scared half to death. Later my family and me sat at the dinner table. I told mother what had happened and surprisingly I didn't get the reaction I thought I was going to get. a

Actually mother was happy. And that was weird. We prayed and then we ate. When mother and father when't into the bedroom I quickly ran out of my room, grabbed the lantern and ran outside. The reason I ran outside is because I was taking them some food. I went back to the house and opened the door I saw grandma knitting something. The next morning me and princes went to go and feed the chickens. After I was done feeding the chickens I went back home and I saw two men in are house. The two men were holding a wanted sign at my grandpa. Then I looked over and I saw an eye in the stairs closet. The men left the house and I went outside and watched them leave on there horse. I ran outside that night and saw a doll behind are barn. I took it to the house and I fell asleep with it. THE END


war letter

July 21, 1861
Dear, mama

We gathered troops. And so did the confederate. Then we started to fight and the war began. A hole bunch of people died and allot of people suffered because of injury. The next day the confederate set up a sneak attack and we weren't ready for that. They started to go into peoples sleeping area and killing them. Then that was it we had to surrender because we were low on food and ammo and other resources so they won the war.

I survived the war and I'm coming back home. 2,896 and 460 died or suffered on the union. And 1,982 and 387 died or suffered of the confederate.
