This is very emotive. It would be horrible to be placed in such a position, but what a sensible decision he made in the end. The love and commitment of/to family is worth all the name calling in the world! Well done.

An excellent story, very well written. War forces choices on so many. I am so glad we no longer send young boys to war, although 18 is still a boy to me. Michael and Mance came alive through your story. Good job! God bless!
Oh what a wonderful way to represent sellout, plus an interesting history lesson to boot. I never thought what it would have been like for the South after the war was over Thanks for the great story.
