Summary
In 1861, too young and too small to enlist, Alman Beneway left home and followed Indiana infantry regiments for almost a year before he found a company that would enlist him as a drummer boy. This history, based on his memoirs and other primary sources, follows Al and his regiment through the south to Chickamauga, where he is captured while helping wounded soldiers, and his 14 months as a prisoner of war, until he rejoins his regiment in 1865
Summary
Recounts the Civil War experiences of Almon Beneway, who, under the name Albert Walton, left home at fourteen to join the Union Army, eventually enlisted as a drummer in an Indiana regiment, and was taken prisoner at Chickamauga
