  13. A House Divided

  14. The Drummer boy at Shiloh Joby can’t sleep because of apprehension of the coming battle. The general walks by and hears him crying because he’s scared. General Grant says he cried to, and he cried because he felt bad for the men that would die that day, and the men who would die, did not think they would die because full of battle lust they believed that battle was a bloodless thing. Then General Grant explains to Joby that Joby has a lot of responsibility and he must keep the army moving. And that he is the Heart of the army and that if his drum, as he is the drummer boy and if his drum beats slow the hearts of the men will beat slow but if he beats fast and at a steady pace the hearts of the men will beat steady and fast to victory.

  15. What this means to Me This story influences me greatly because it speaks of the children in the civil war and talks about how it terrified them, the blood the death, all of the aspects of war, thrust upon a youth, who, in Joby’s case is probably no older than 13.
