It is June of 1863 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. In the middle of the night, twelve-year-old Ben sneaks out to search for his older brother, Reuben, a captain in the Pennsylvania 106th regiment. The boys’ pa recently died, and Ben wants to bring Reuben home to Ma before the "big battle" everyone is talking about erupts. To Ben’s dismay, his pesky younger cousin and Reuben’s dog tag along for the adventure.
