o Romaine Stauffer, Aaron's Civil War (Harrisonburg, VA: Christian Light Publications, 2011). I've been pushed around all my life, Aaron thought. Somebody is always telling me what to do, when to do it, and where to go. I'm sick of it. Lured by the promise of adventure, travel, and a large bonus, Aaron Stauffer turned his back on his training and his mother's tears and enlisted to fight in the Civil War. His heart swelled with pride and patriotism as he shouldered his newly acquired musket and marched behind the colorful banner of his company while the band played stirring music. He felt powerful enough to win the war single-handedly and return in a matter of weeks as a hero. But things did not go the way he had dreamed Army life was not what he had been led to believe it would be. Euphoria turned to miser and fear and questions as the horrible realities of war brought him face to face with the enemy -- and death. As Aaron looks for answers to the questions he can no longer avoid, he discovers the Civil War has become, for him an intensely personal battle.
