Irene’s Desk recently read and reviewed Mr. Lincoln’s Drummer by G. Clifton Wisler for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge. Here’s an excerpt:
I hate to say I enjoyed this book, I mean really who likes a war book, that’s very descriptive, but I did. I don’t think I would have recommended it to the students of the age group it is recommended for, perhaps just a little older, although just a little older wouldn’t find it cool enough. War through the eyes of a child is even more disturbing than usual, and considering this is based on a true story it is even more important.
