A story of unsuspected courage.
In late June of 1863 two armies converge on an unremarkable field in southern Pennsylvania where Tom Burns, a sixteen-year-old Union soldier becomes enmeshed in three of the Civil War’s bloodiest days.
But Tom knows something no one else does. Something that his commanding officers realize may help them gain an advantage in the coming battle—wherever it is to be fought. But all Tom wants is to return home on the 4th of July, however briefly, to the place he has always known as home—Gettysburg.
