    I am currently reading a book called Frank Thompson Her Civil War Story by Bryna Stevens This is a true biography about a Candian girl named Emma Edmonds who drssed up like a man to fight in the Civil War At first she was too petiete so she starded as a boy nurse Then later on she became a spy The weird part was she had to be a women spy She was a girl disguiesd as a man then dressed up like a woman She was so good at being a women a rumor started Could this small little man actully be a girl? This book really amazes me I mean a girl dressed up like a man to fight in a counrty she didn't live in Emma Edmonds Frank Thompson wrote her own book called Nurse and Spy in the book I am reading it has entries from Nurse and Spy as well as her and others diary entries Emma sort of reminds me of me but only because she and I both like to write I would never in a million years find the courage to do what Emma has done This book is filled to the top with bravery love and heartbreaks I would highly reccomend this book to boys or girls who like to learn about their nations history overall I rate this book 5 stars It is just so amazing PS READ THE BOOK

    Title Frank Thomas Her Civil War StoryAuthor Bryna StevensIllustrator Bryna StevensGenre Biography Grade 3 5Themes War Trickery Adversity BraveryOpening LineSentence Emma Edmonds Seelye lived about one hundred years ago yet her life is still relevantBrief Book Summary Emma Edmonds disguised herself as a man to serve in the Union Army during the civil war She started out as a nurse then moved on to a mail carrier then finally to a spy She put on several different disguises and revealed much important information for the North She never went to the hospital even after the war ended because her secret might have been revealedProfessional RecommendationReview #1Kirkus Kirkus Reviews 1992 Facing an unwanted marriage Emma Edmonds ran away escaping pursuit by donning man's clothing and joining the Union army Though undiscovered throughout the war she may have confided in and courted the attentions of several men As Frank Thompson she was field nurse postal rider and spy sometimes slipping behind Confederate lines An excellent rider a sure shot and remarkably brave Emma was in the thick of Bull Run Antietam and Fredericksburg After the war she resumed a woman's role marrying a man she deeply loved; she described her adventures in a mannered but lucid style in her Nurse and Spy occasionally uoted here Stevens carefully differentiates between fact and supposition explaining that Emma was good at deception and may well have embroidered her account Pointing out what's authenticated she notes where Emma's story may ring false uoting other sources While the tale's full of action and adventure thoughtful readers will also be interested in Emma's struggle against women's second rate status the contrast between the romantic vision of war and its grim reality and the intriguing uestion of who may have detected Emma's female identity A fascinating account of an uncommonly enigmatic woman List of sources;

when she said she found their new friendship 'very pleasant' she was no doubt downplaying her feelings of love for the lieutenant In the next chapter the same lieutenant is uneuivocally Emma's sweetheart although the author offers no evidence for any relationship beyond friendship Edmonds' story can survive the innuendo however and it brings an intriguing voice and new perspective to Civil War study A bibliography index and some period prints and photographs are included Ad Additional book of acceptable uality for collections needing material in the area c Copyright 1992 The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois 1992 Macmillan 144p;
