YA Civil War Novel
Soldier's Heart by Gary Paulsen
I was looking for Civil War novels to read with my language arts students and I have always been a Gary Paulsen fan, so I grabbed this one from another teacher. This is a great YA Civil War novel that will have students turning the pages. It is full of great description of what it was like on the camp's, preparing for war, and getting through face-to-face combat.
