Book Description:
What would life be like for a 10-year-old drummer boy serv-ing in the American Civil War? Essentially the same as for any enlistee! There was little opportunity to shield anyone from ei-ther the good or bad experiences of war. There were playmaking, pranks, jokes, marches, and battles–as well as carrying the wounded and burying the dead. Courage is commonly ascribed to adults. With Gilbert Van-Zandt, Lil Gib, we must recognize his unusual valor and patriot-ism–uncommon at any time, in any war. Marilyn Seguin carefully layers the experiences of Lil Gib, the drummer boy of the 79th Ohio OVI, and the true history of the outfit has finally comes to life, The real Civil War story of Gil-bert VanZandt is finally told.
