Examples [ edit ] On December 26, , Confederate Lt. Two Confederate forward scouts, Adam R. Johnson and Robert M. Martin, each had brothers stationed at the camp. The battle is also notable for being the only time in United States military history that two regiments from the same state with the same numerical designation have engaged each other in battle. Gabe, an eleven-year-old boy, is a bugler in the Union Army. While he is doing his responsibilities of being a bugler, he takes this very seriously, for there are over 60 different battle calls that he will need to learn!
Although Gabe knows that his responsibility of being a bugler is very important, it is even more important for him to watch over his older brother, Davy, who is r The Last Brother: Although Gabe knows that his responsibility of being a bugler is very important, it is even more important for him to watch over his older brother, Davy, who is right in the thick of the fighting. Davy is Gabe's last brother, as they had lost their other brothers in earlier battles, so he will do whatever it takes to protect him.
Suddenly, Gabe meets Orlee who is a young Confederate bugler, which complicates everything that was once definite and clear due to a new friendship and compassion.

What happens next, you may ask? You'll have to read to find out because it's better to keep the ending a secret. This book is on my favorites shelf because of how the author has written this book. Although it is a historical fiction story, it is almost as if any student can be put in the spot of Gabe and can be used as the main character in this story. This story would be great in both primary and intermediate grades, but I can definitely see this story getting a lot of use in the primary grades.
Although there is not much being taught about this topic in social studies for these primary grades, students can definitely adapt this story and make it into a play where they are learning about topics such as the Civil War, friendship and suspense into the classroom and definitely look forward to the intermediate grades when they will be learning more and more about these topics!
Sep 28, Cassia Catterall added it Shelves: This was a historical fiction children's book that talked about the Civil War and specifically Gettysburg. The book leaned strongly on pathos entering emotion into many pages, especially when Gabe is talking to the war horse about both of his brother's deaths in the war. The illustrations are beautiful in the book.
They look like they were taken on a camera and then put on the page. This book could be used to teach children geography. It talks about different geograph Brief Review: The book could also be used in history to discuss a specific point in the Civil War. It clearly shows the massive loss off soldiers and how hard it was for both sides. Why was Gabe's friend named Orlee? His dad wanted to name him a fancy name but his mom would always say, "Or Lee" because she was set on Lee being his name.
This happened so many times that they called him Orlee. Where was Gettysburg located? Gettysburg was seven miles from the Mason-Dixon line in Pennsylvania. What is hardtack and fatback? What does playing taps on the bugle mean? Did Gabe and Davey make it home at the end of the war? Mar 28, Gabriella Reeves rated it did not like it. IT was just a history book.

This story has ful This is a great story about eleven year old Gabriel who has followed his year-old brother Davy to war after their older brothers were killed fighting.
This story has full color illustrations which take the readers straight into the war. We southerners are welcomed. I have a spectacular commander, Colonel Joshua Chamberlain. He is a professor and a graduate of Harvard University, but he is as good a fighting man as any West Point man. During the battle, the Rebels kept coming, even though it was uphill. Men were falling all around me. Finally we ran out of ammunition. Most commanders would retreat from the battle at that point, but not Chamberlain. And so we did. When they attacked again, we charged down the hill at them.
They were so surprised to see us come charging with our bayonets, most of them ran away or they gave up and we captured them. That was a masterly thing for Chamberlain to do. When this cruel war is over, I hope to continue my studies. He gives fine speeches. He sounds like a preacher. I can see why women fall in love with preachers. A professor is something like a preacher. Jed searched the battlefield and found his brother Beau dying.
Beau asked him to make sure his mother received his letters. Jed held Beau until he died. It became popular in America, and was sung with equal sadness in every army camp, Union and Confederate, during the American Civil War.
