Soldier Boy by Anne Rooney

When Drew's little brother Martin digs up a bone in the back garden, Drew isn't worried at first. He thinks it's just a dog's bone. But when Martin finds more bones, he realizes they make a hand. To begin with it feels like an adventure, but then the bones seem to move from where Drew leaves them, and someone is writing him spooky messages. It turns out there is a body of a soldier from the Civil War buried in Drew's back garden, but the hand is from someone smaller, a soldier boy who won't rest until Drew and Martin bury his bones again.
