Historical connection

This story of Ismael Beah reminds me of the 1800's, specificaly the American civil war. I think that these times are similar because in the civil war confederates forced there slaves to fight for the confederates against there own will. This is similar because they both are forcing people that cant defend themselves to fight in a war.
