    Story
    "Run away teens looking for brother in the 14th Reg"

    This is my first book by John Jack McGuire. The story has two teenage boys running away from a Brooklyn orphanage heading south to find a brother who is in Brooklyn's famous red legged devils of the 14th regiment. They are hired as muleskinners to drive a supply wagon for the Massachusetts's Regiment. When they get to Pennsylvania they join the Pennsylvania regiment as Robert E Lee's Army of Northern Virginia faces George Mead's Union Army of the Potomac at Gettysburg. Lots of history is given and local scenery also. The book is short but only covers the boys travels and the battle. The boys grow up fast on this trip. Eric Stuart did a good job reading the story.
