Dated but nonetheless touching June 19 2012
By MamaSylvia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
eBook downloaded free from Gutenberg. Short collection of short pieces, set during the Civil War. Besides the title piece, The King of Clubs and the Queen of Hearts, The Cross On the Old Church Tower, and The Death of John (labelled a true story) are included.

Although quite dated, this collection will remind the reader of Alcott's skill at tearjerkers. The Death of John seems to be an expanded version of a story included in Hospital Sketches. Keep a box of kleenex handy when reading this! Spelling and grammar were acceptable, formatting was occasionally a little wonky but not to the point that it distracted me from the story.
Short storys Jan. 30 2013

3 short stories, one of which is a republishing of part of hospital sketches. The main soldier in each story dies. Luckily for the most part not as preachy as some of her other works.
On Picket Duty was the best of the short stories in this book Aug. 27 2014

On Picket Duty was the best of the short stories in this book. I find it interesting to read the stroies of authers who lived much closer to the historical events about which they are writing than we are.
