Realistic Civil War historical fiction about a Tennessee mountain boy who, during the war, comes to realize that war is terrible no matter where one's sympathies lie.

Hot-headed Chris Brabson hates the Yankees for invading his Tennessee mountain home. He learns a difficult lesson about the waste of war and the meaning of tolerance and courage when he reports to the Confederates the approach of a Yankee supply troop . . . only to learn that his brother is probably part of the invading force. Good character studies.
