Drummer Boy of the 17th IN. Reg.

This book follows the life of an Irish orphan boy found on the streets of New York City about 1857. Johnny, among other children, was captured and placed in a facility on Randall’s Island, New York, for their protection. He was later transferred by railroad on the orphan train to Princeton, Indiana, where he was chosen by a gunsmith to help in his trade and at home.

During the American Civil War, Johnny joined the service first at eleven years old and then again at age thirteen to serve to the end of the war. A veteran of the Civil War, Johnny mustered out of service at the age of fifteen.
