The child moved his little hands, making wild, uncertain gestures. Those of us who have been out of place resume our positions; the men resting at ease straighten themselves and the ranks are re-formed without a command. The child was a deaf mute. Then he stood motionless, with quivering lips, looking down upon the wreck. Some of us staff officers dismount and look at our saddle girths; those already on the ground remount.

Charles, with his headquarters in Oxford, enjoyed support in the north and west of England, in Wales, and (after 1643) in Ireland. Desperate to protect their revolution at home, the Covenanters insisted upon the establishment of Presbyterianism in England and in return agreed to send an army of 21,000 men to serve there.

In this Civil War story, Carter Druse, a young soldier from a wealthy Virginia family elects to fight for the Union. But do not focus on the literary techniques to distraction or you will miss the real art of the story, which first emerges with a soldier's hesitation. We find him posted on sentry duty, guarding the valley where five regiments of Union soldiers are hunkered down and hiding. How far would you go to fulfill your mission? Check our Study Guide.

War Horse is a children's novel by English author Michael Morpurgo. It was first published in Great Britain by Kaye & Ward in 1982. The story recounts the experiences of Joey, a horse purchased by the Army for service in World War I France and the attempts of young Albert, his previous owner, to bring him safely home. It formed the basis of both an award-winning play (2007) and an acclaimed film adaptation (2011) by Steven Spielberg.

Soldier-women bound their breasts when necessary, padded the waists of their trousers, and cut their hair short. Loreta Velazquez wore a false mustache, developed a masculine gait, learned to smoke cigars, and padded her uniform coat to make herself look more muscular. These amateur citizen soldiers enlisted ignorant of army life. Many privates had never fired a gun before entering the army. For a discussion of a Revolutionary War woman soldier, see Julia Ward Stickley, "The Records of Deborah Sampson Gannett, Woman Soldier of the Revolution," Prologue 4 (1972): 233-241.
