The third installment of "Tales of Young Americans" takes place in 1863 Gettysburg, site of the Civil War's bloodiest battle. Gabe, an 11-year-old bugler in the Union Army, is eyewitness to this event. But more important to him is watching over his older brother Davy, who is in the thick of the fighting. Two of Gabe's older brothers have already perished, and he is not willing to lose the one he has left. This story draws questions about loyalty and honor that will resonate with young readers.
