"Ben feels the dirt cellar floor rolling under his feet. A cloud of fine dust rises from the floor making him sneeze. He hears cannon shells shriek, howl, and whistle overhead somewhere not far from his Gettysburg home." Two of the largest armies the world has ever seen collide in the small Pennsylvania town of Gettysburg in July 1863. For three days, one hundred and seventy thousand combatants struggle to determine the future of the United States of America. This is the story of a brother and sister caught in the Battle of Gettysburg. While this story is fictional, it is based on carefully researched first-hand accounts.
