Captured! A Boy Trapped in the Civil War by Mary Blair Immel

Fourteen-year-old Johnny Ables left his farm in southern Kentucky one morning in early 1862 to gather wood, riding into danger and adventure he could never have imagined. A desperate group of Confederate soldiers kidnapped Johnny for his horses and wagon. Forced into battle at Fort Donelson, Johnny endured cannon fire and hand-to-hand combat and was stranded freezing, alone, and dazed among wounded and dying men. After a miserably cramped voyage by steamboat and train, Johnny and his kidnappers were marched to Camp Morton Prison in Indianapolis. There, Johnny struggled to survive.

The book Captured starts out very boring but as you read on and get introduced to the characters it becomes more interesting. I would suggest this book to children and also as a read aloud to students. I hope you, your child or students enjoy this book.
