Summary
Lucy McRae, Willie Lord and Frederick Grant, were children who survived the Civil War's Battle for Vicksburg. In 1863, Union troops intend to silence the cannons guarding the Mississippi River at Vicksburg by taking the city by siege and shelling Vicksburg night and day. Terrified townspeople, including Lucy and Willie, take shelter in caves enduring heat, snakes, and near suffocation. On the Union side, twelve-year-old Frederick Grant has come to visit his father, General Ulysses S. Grant, only to find himself in the midst of battle, experiencing first-hand the horrors of war. Period photographs, maps, and engravings extend this dramatic story as seen through the eyes of civilians, military men from both sides, and, above all, three brave children who were there. --B.I.P
