Beschreibung

The personal objects left behind by the Civil War soldier are small windows which allow us to get a brief glimpse into the most momentous part of his life. When I came across an item to use in this book - what we might consider today as trivial - I tried to figure out why it was so important to him. In today's "world of disposable goods", who would take the time to meticulously inscribe their name or initials, or save, such an inanimate object as a razor or soap dish? We may think it was done to prove ownership, maybe it could identify him if killed or wounded, or maybe it was just out of boredom. Some of these scenarios might be true, but I think it was much more than that. He knew the war would be scrupulously studied by future generations. Many of these veterans carefully packed away their menial possessions as a personal time capsule, hoping that someone in the future would discover them, and if only for a brief moment, remember the part they played in American History.

As a father with three small children, I made my first visit to Gettysburg many years ago, and sadly, I actually didn't know very much about the Civil War or Gettysburg - even being only a few hours away by car. Ever since that first visit, I have been totally intrigued with the town and what happened there. I went on to write several books regarding both the Civil War and Gettysburg. I believe this story will allow children to step back in time and better understand what kids went through during the Civil War.
