About this title


This is the story of young Bill Quimby, an Iowa farm boy who’s itching to enlist in the Union Army to help put down the rebellion that’s been going on for the past year. Now, eighteen years old, he joins the army for an adventure shared by millions of Americans during the four crucial years of the Civil War. With a sweetheart waiting at home, Private Quimby quickly learns fighting a war is much different than expected. Accompanied by childhood friends, Quimby starts an adventure that’s at once terrifying and confusing, yet covered with a glory that only those who pass through the crucible of combat can understand and appreciate. Bill and the rookie 42nd Iowa Volunteer Infantry arrive in time to take part in the Second Battle of Bull Run and help the Iron Brigade hold off Stonewall Jackson. Wherever there’s a desperate fight, it seems Bill and his regiment are present.
