    11 year old Gabe enlists in the Union Army in Pennsylvania as a bugler He tries to protect his older brother, Davy, especially since two other brothers enlisted awhile ago and never returned This lovingly told and beautifully illustrated book was based on the author s own family history at the Battle of Gettysburg Readers will see, through Gabe s eyes, that issues of war can be complicated, often having to choose between service to country, to kin, or even to a new friend.

    A Moving and beautifully illustrated story about Gettysburg, inspired by the experiences of the author s own ancestors I choked up at the end while trying to read it to my boys They then asked for an explanation, which precipitatedof a discussion Heaven forbid our anger and disagreements as a nation ever lead to such divisive loss ever again

    I read this book for the ATY 2019 Reading Challenge Week 39 Sense of PlaceGabe is eleven and a bugler for the Union Army, in this historical fiction picture book about the civil war Gabe is about to go into his first battle the battle of Gettysburg The sense of place is conveyed by the artist s painting of the small farming community of Gettysburg, PA before, during, and after the battle It is a well told story enhanced by the excellent paintings of Tom Papp.

    The Last Brother A Civil War Tale is just as it sounds, a history book folded down into a children s picture book Gabe, an eleven year old boy, is a bugler in the Union Army While he is doing his responsibilities of being a bugler, he takes this very seriously, for there are over 60 different battle calls that he will need to learn Although Gabe knows that his responsibility of being a bugler is very important, it is evenimportant for him to watch over his older brother, Davy, who is r The Last Brother A Civil War Tale is just as it sounds, a history book folded down into a children s picture book Gabe, an eleven year old boy, is a bugler in the Union Army While he is doing his responsibilities of being a bugler, he takes this very seriously, for there are over 60 different battle calls that he will need to learn Although Gabe knows that his responsibility of being a bugler is very important, it is evenimportant for him to watch over his older brother, Davy, who is right in the thick of the fighting Davy is Gabe s last brother, as they had lost their other brothers in earlier battles, so he will do whatever it takes to protect him Suddenly, Gabe meets Orlee who is a young Confederate bugler, which complicates everything that was once definite and clear due to a new friendship and compassion What happens next, you may ask You ll have to read to find out because it s better to keep the ending a secret.This book is on my favorites shelf because of how the author has written this book Although it is a historical fiction story, it is almost as if any student can be put in the spot of Gabe and can be used as the main character in this story This story would be great in both primary and intermediate grades, but I can definitely see this story getting a lot of use in the primary grades Although there is not much being taught about this topic in social studies for these primary grades, students can definitely adapt this story and make it into a play where they are learning about topics such as the Civil War, friendship and suspense into the classroom and definitely look forward to the intermediate grades when they will be learningandabout these topics
