About This Book

The heart-wrenching true story of Civil War valor in which a 15-year old Yankee soldier, Say, alone and bleeding, is dragged to safety by a fellow Union soldier from the Forty-eighth colored regiment. They are ultimately captured and separated, and Say survived to pass the story down through the author's family.

"Unglamorized details of the conventions and atrocities of the Civil War target readers well beyond customary picture book age." — Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books.
