Brothers of War
Brothers of WarTwo brothers from Kentucky get captured by the Rebel army. The brothers soon find they are fighting for survival in Andersonville Confederate Prison. They also search for their missing father, whom they believe is somewhere within the confines of the prison walls.

Boys as young as nine years old participated in this American conflict. We have no accurate records of how many boys enlisted for the Northern or Southern armies. Over four hundred thousand were involved directly in the war. National laws now prevent boys from participating in American wars.

Andersonville was one of the largest Confederate military compounds. The site has an award-winning lesson plan for teaching about historical places. More than forty-five thousand Union soldiers were confined here. Learn more »
