Learn about the Civil War through the eyes of a twelve-year-old bugle boy's letter home to his mother. Soldiers from both the North and the South wrote letters home describing the hardships they endured. Many boys under the age of fifteen, and even some girls masquerading as boys, enlisted as messengers, scouts, drummers, fifes, and buglers.
"I love the settings and the masterful details in your Civil War art." -R. Hauck, Staff Action Control Officer at HQDA
"Powerful Message." -N. Solell, Senior Education Consultant
