Publisher's Summary

The year was 1865, and the Civil War had just grown to a close. The surrender was on May 9, 1865. General Lee had surrendered to General Grant, and I had been there to witness it, although I was just one of several hundred onlookers in Appomattox, Virginia, and I was glad the war was finally over.

My name is James Timmons. I fought for the Union. I’m from the great state of Kansas, where my family owns a farm in the southeastern part of the state. It had become a state while I was away fighting in the war.

Now that the war was over, I was planning on returning home, but only for a short visit before continuing west. A sod-buster is the last thing I want to be. I grew up farming, and I don’t want to waste another day of my life watching plants grow. 

I was 16 years old, and the War Between the States had broken out—that was 1861. I had heard stories about the war and from what little I knew of history. Just what I’d read in school; I had a romantic infatuation with the idea of being a soldier. I didn’t want to be just any soldier, though. I wanted to be an important one. That idea was quickly dispelled once I enlisted.
