Nice tribute to American history. I love the line about being over 18. I've never heard that one before, it brought a nice chuckle to a serious situation.
Well written, well documented, albeit a bit short.
Great attention to detail and descriptions! I hadn't heard about the 'over 18'--I can see boys doing that! Great job!
What a masterful way of capturing one tiny little moment in history!
It's easy to forget that the long ago war involved real people, real US citizens, fighting each other. Your story captures very well a small moment of that important conflict.
I love Civil War stories. Thanks for sharing your perspective here. I wish it was longer.
