JOURNAL OF JAMES EDMOND PEASE : A CIVIL WAR UNION SOLDIER (MY NAME IS AMERICA
York : Scholastic, 1998.
Edmond Pease is a sixteen year old orphan who finds himself in the Union
Army during the Civil War. He is chosen to keep the troop journal
-- a chore is does not want to have. He believes that being the troop
reporter is a cursed position. Anyone who has had the job has been
killed. We follow the daily routines of the troop through the diary
of young Mr. Pease. We learn of the food, the poor living conditions
and the horrors of war. This journal is written in a realistic style
complete with misspellings and jargon of the day. If you enjoy reading
historical fiction diaries, you'll enjoy THE JOURNAL OF JAMES EDMOND PEASE.
