ok i have noticed in the recent months that my little brother has started to take a interest in the Civil War. he's in 4th grade and hates to read. i was wonderin if anyone knows of any easy to read books for kids that i might could find for my brother. i want to take advantage of his sudden interest in history so that he wont go through life like everyone else i know thinking that its just a bunch of crap about old dead guys that we really dont need to know about.

There is a book that was rather long for any kid around that age but a real easy read. I cant remeber its name but I it was about a kid who enlisted when he was twelve in a confedearte regiment form Richmond. He lived there and all that. Towards the end you find out that at the Battle of Fredericksburg he finds a little girl in a destroyed house her ma and pa were dead. So she kept to him and he decied to go back home and leave her at Richmond with his father and step mother. there was a prequel to this as well about the John Brown Trial cause him and his father were kept prisoner by John Brown during his raid and something about him and his cousins argueing about the war. Also do you think he might want to listen to an Audio Book?
