"The Civil War intensifies to the south and Stephen, an accomplished bugler in the town band, wants to help end slavery and support his mother by joining the Union effort. The opportunity to enlist as Colonel Eli Lilly's personal bugler arises and Stephen jumps at the chance. He endures trial after trial, from battle to Confederate prison and the shipwreck of the steamboat Sultana. Through luck and fortitude Stephen survives, but his Civil War journey is one that will engage readers of all ages. Based on historical facts and characters, Stephan's story truly captures the essence of the era."
