Pickett's Charge, the suicidal Confederate Army assault on the last day of the Battle of Gettysburg, serves as the powerful climax of this Civil War novel, in which the lives of three heroic girls--a Yankee, a rebel and a free black--are linked and forever changed. Thirteen-year-old Annie Gordon, disguised as a boy, sells herself as a substitute soldier and joins the Portsmouth Rifles of the 9th Virginia Infantry as they march north to Gettysburg. In Gettysburg lives fourteen-year-old Tillie Pierce, the frivolous daughter of a local merchant whose romanticized notion of war is immediately dispelled once the fighting begins. Also in Gettysburg are Grace Bryan and her father, who refuse to flee with the other free blacks who fear that the rebels will arrest them as fugitive slaves. This gripping novel follows the fates of these girls, fates that reflect the tragedies and triumphs, the humanity, heartache, and heroism of this Civil War battle.
