young fighters 😱
CHILDREN OF THE CIVIL WAR!!!!
some of the the children would go kill somebody and come back and be punished
kids would be very sick and they would still make the fight and extra stuff because they don't care if the kid die they have more to fight with !!!!!
young boys had to do hard work like on this picture u see they had to take away the dead people and yes the dead person would be heavy because they have this heavy thing underneath the person
young teens had to watch mens and women die bye bombs guns or just being sick and sometimes even the young ones had to watch some of there family members die !!!
some kids would be verrrrrrrry sick that there care taker aka doctor couldn't do nothing to are for it so they would slowly die RIP!!!!!!!
How it didn't matter how young you were u could still fight!!!!!!!
How the kids would leave their families and fight the war
When war broke out in 1861, kids across the North and the South said goodbye to their fathers, brothers, uncles, and cousins -- or joined the military themselves. As many as 20% of Civil War soldiers were younger than 18. That was the minimum recruiting age for Union soldiers, but many people willingly overlooked the law. The Confederacy set no minimum age. Many young soldiers enlisted as musicians -- drummers, fifers, or buglers. In theory, musicians didn't fight. But once a battle began, these kids often armed themselves -- to save their own lives or the lives of their friends.
~the young boys that was not 18 they would be the drummers or the recorders if the Civil War.
~Some children served in the army camps. They would help wash dishes, fix meals, and set up the camp when it moved. These children were in less danger than the soldiers doing the fighting
~The Civil War is sometimes called "The Boys' War" because so many young men fought as soldiers.
