Very Young Courageous Boy


If you have ever read a book about the Civil War you know that it can be tragic, inspiring, and adventurous. Well this book is both inspiring and tragic. There are many different moments where he is either brave or afraid.


This book is about a boy who is not technically captured by the Hessians and he actually fights a battle with them which is quite brave because it was a life or death situation. And surprisingly, they win the war. He goes back home unharmed. He also does this because his dad was injured home and he wanted to show his dad he was worthy.
