Publisher Summary
A young Yankee drummer boy displays great courage when he's captured and sent to Andersonville Prison.

R.J. thought that war would be the ultimate adventure—until he was in the middle of it.

In 1862, thirteen-year-old Ransom J. Powell lies about his age and joins the Union Army as a drummer boy. At first, he is thrilled to be defending his country, but by the time he has been in his first skirmish he sees war for the brutal horror that it is. Then he and his regiment are captured and taken to Camp Sumter, a Confederate prison. With its disease and cruel guards, Camp Sumter is worse than any battlefield, and Ransom watches is friends die one by one. Will he be next?
