Burning Of The Valley (Paperback)
Smoke billowed from the Shenandoah Valley as Union soldiers marched from farm to farm torching every building in sight. Some children hid behind the skirts of their mothers, others fought back, and one brave boy traded the safety of his barn for fresh eggs. These are the stories of the children who faced the enemy and found the courage to overcome fear and rebuild their lives. Eleven-year-old Tess Meyer Wadman recounts the heroism and terror of the Shenandoah's days of terror in this riveting work.
