The bloodiest battle in American history is under way . . .

It's 1863, and Thomas and his little sister, Birdie, have fled the farm where they were born and raised as slaves. Following the North Star, looking for freedom, they soon cross paths with a Union soldier. Everything changes: Corporal Henry Green brings Thomas and Birdie back to his regiment, and suddenly it feels like they've found a new home. Best of all, they don't have to find their way north alone-they're marching with the army.

But then orders come through: The men are called to battle in Pennsylvania. Thomas has made it so far . . . but does he have what it takes to survive Gettysburg?

    I give this book a 4 out of 5 if you like an adventurous story and you like learning about wars this book is for you. At the end of every chapter, this book makes you want to read more. This book is about Thomas and his little sister Birdie they were born and raised as slaves and when they escape their slave owner they meet this soldier who takes him along with them. One day the general said that they were going to war. In Pennsylvania, the battle of Gettysburg was one of the most bloodiest wars.
