Read in middle school (I think). Guessing on dates. ( )

I read this book a long time ago and just reread it. The author describes a young recruit in the Federal Army during the civil war. We are told of his actions and thoughts. He begins with cowardice and later acts with courage. The story is a reminder that war is a stupid way of resolving conflict. It is difficult to see why this book has been forced on students for many years other than it is short and teaches some history. There is nothing really interesting about the book. ( )

I read this in 7th Grade English Class. I remember that year as the "year of war" since most of the books we read seemed to be set in times of war. This was one of the better books from those we were required to read. ( )
