As Confederate and Union soldiers take over their town, the local residents can do little more than hunker down in their homes while cannon and gunfire explode around them. But the battles are not only fought between soldiers. At home, fourteen-year-old Tacy and her disabled brother lock horns as David struggles with his desire to go to war. He has strong principles, and it tortures him to allow others to fight while he does nothing. In the aftermath of this great and terrible battle, in whichso many soldiers sacrifice their lives for their beliefs, David gives his last full measure...and leaves Tacy struggling to make sense out of it all.

A good look at how terrible war truly is. A tear jerker for sure.

I always enjoy Ann Rinaldi's books; she excels at historical fiction. I would recommend this title to those who prefer historical fiction and books about strong young women protagonists.

This story, the majority of it taking place during the Reb's occupation of the town of Gettyburg in July 1863, fleshes out the emotional and physical demands that occur to the town's residents, particularly the Stryker family.
