When people read about the Civil War, it is often stories about daring soldiers in battle. But soldiers were not the only ones involved in the war. In every town and city, on every farm and in every school, children played a role in the conflict. Whether Union or Confederate, young people cheered their soldiers in the army with letters from home. They took care of the family homes and farms while fathers and brothers were away in battle. And all children suffered from the difficulties and the uncertainties of war, just as grownups did.

Young Heroes of the North and South tells the story of the many brave and courageous children who participated in the Civil War — from the home front and on the battlefield. Discover how young people helped in the war effort by raising money for food and medical supplies. Explore the ways children assisted on farms, lifted spirits by performing in plays, and helped nurse wounded soldiers. Meet young people who served as spies and marched into battle as drummer boys and soldiers.
