Does Henry have what it takes to survive the bloodiest battle ever fought on American soil? The Civil War comes to life for I SURVIVED readers!

The bloodiest battle in American history is about to begin. . .

It's 1863, and Thomas and his father are slaves in South Carolina. But in the chaos of the Civil War, they manage to break free and head north.

Through the Underground Railroad they make their way to Pennsylvania. But they can't escape the war — and soon Thomas finds himself in the middle of a harrowing battle.

He's come so far . . . but does he have what it takes to survive Gettysburg?

Does he have what it takes to survive the Battle of Gettysburg?

Synopsis:

The bloodiest battle in American history is under way . . .

It's 1863, and Thomas and his little sister, Birdie, have fled the farm where they were born and raised as slaves. Following the North Star, looking for freedom, they soon cross paths with a Union soldier. Everything changes: Corporal Henry Green brings Thomas and Birdie back to his regiment, and suddenly it feels like they've found a new home. Best of all, they don't have to find their way north alone-they're marching with the army.

But then orders come through: The men are called to battle in Pennsylvania. Thomas has made it so far . . . but does he have what it takes to survive Gettysburg?
