A hundred years ago, the agony of the Civil War tore American apart, and caught in the turmoil were thousands of youngsters, too young to die but old enough to face death willingly every day. Tim Morgan was one of these boys. In Fairfax Country, Virginia, he played his part, smuggling much-needed supplies through the Yankee lines to the North. But for Tim this was not enough - he wanted to be a real soldier for the South, on a prancing horse and with a glittering sabre. In this exciting book, the glamour of war is stripped away for Tom Morgan, and is revealed as a time when a boy became a man.
