"Notes of Army and Prison Life 1862-1865." Compiled and edited by Janet Hayward Burnham. (Bethel, Vt.: My Little Jessie Press, 2004, $14.95.)

Notes of Army and Prison LifeNotes of Army and Prison Life was a very good book. It taught me to never give up hope no matter what position I am in.

Notes of Army and Prison Life was very adventurous and it was full of surprises. There are many more reasons why Notes of Army and Prison Life was a very good book, but I only named a few.

Notes of Army and Prison Life was not that hard to understand, and I am only twelve years old. There were some diseases that I did not know what they were. And there were a few words that I did not know what they meant. But, I understood the story. I really enjoyed this book!
