Set during the Civil War, the story concerns two soldiers, one white and one black, and the events that transpire after one saves the other. My students endured this book in order to learn about the horrors of slavery and to find the human element in a monumental, historical event. I read a section of the book, stopped, and asked them to write a response in their black and white speckled composition books. The story enraptured the students and they, in turn, wrote some of the most passionate and zealous responses I have read by second graders. That is the power of historical fiction.
