Fifteen-year-old Jeff Majors faces one difficulty after another as a drummer in the Confederate Army. But more than Civil War is giving Jeff problems.
What should he do about Leah, his longtime good friend? What should he do about Ezra, that escaped Yankee prisoner who is obviously bidding for Leah's attention? At times she seems so stubborn, so totally wrong.
What should he do about the traitor Lucy? Can he ever forgive her?
Most troublesome, though is what to do about his own muleheaded self. Why is it so hard to say, "I'm sorry"?
See how Jeff and Leah sort out their problems- and learn valuable lessons- against the backdrop of the bloody Battle of Antientam
