The Journal of James Edmond Pease a Civil War Union Soldier (My Name is America) by Jim Murphy



Well in the book "The Journal of James Edmond Pease" it talks about a boy named James who live with his aunt and uncle who didn't want him so he runs away and joins the Union Army in the Civil War. James was only 15 when he joined, but he was able to get in. Nobody really liked him cause he was unlucky. One day in the confusion he charged ahead of his company and scared off all the Confederates single handed. After that, he became well liked by most people and soon rose Corporal. He showed his bravery when he spent a week in enemy territory

Although I could not find any direct answer to why Jim Murphy wrote the book, I think that the answer is pretty obvious. The Journal Of James Edmond Pease, A Civil War Union Soldier is part of a Scholastic series called "My Name is America" in which each book is written by a different author (there are a few exceptions to this rule-Jim Murphy wrote four "My Name is America" books). I'm pretty sure that Scholastic just asked Jim Murphy to write the book because they wanted another book in their series.

James Edmond, a sixteen-year-old orphan, keeps a journal of his experiences and those of "G" Company which he joined as a volunteer in the Union Army during the Civil War. Cottonwood. The Civil War will be my focus for the next 5 months, so I plan on reading everything I can about the era. Hopefully everything will sink with each other. Besides the fact that James Pease wrote far to well and too detailed his story seems accurate. I noticed this right away when he mentions not being able to sleep before a battle

The Civil War JOURNAL OF JAMES EDMOND PEASE is now in paperback with an exciting repackaging! Ignorant to the bitter realities of military life, 16-year-old James enlists in the Union Army at the dawn of the Civil War. When his lieutenant assigns him to be the company historian of the G Company of the 122nd Regiment, New York Volunteers, he is initially at a loss as to what exactly he is supposed to record. As the days pass, James settles into his role, but he cannot take comfort in it. His country is divided by a bloody war, and his unit struggles through the hardships and turmoil

I have been collecting real journals of Civil War journals as part of an academic study. It was not clear from the advertising on this book that it is a work of juvenile fiction, so I was enticed to purchase it as the title suggested--a real journal by a young soldier. For a young person reading about the Civil War this book might be suitable, provided s/he understands that there was no actual soldier named James Edmond Pease. Why didn't I get it with Jim Murphy's name on the cover? Because many diaries and journals are published by descendants whose names appear on the cover--and they don't need to share the surname of the diarist.

Good book. I enjoyed it and used it in a civil war class for middle school students I was teaching at our homeschool co-op.

How would you feel if your parents didn't want and to everyone you were considered bad luck? Well in the book "The Journal of James Edmond Pease" it talks about a boy named James who live with his aunt and uncle who didn't want him so he runs away and joins the Union Army in the Civil War.

James was only 15 when he joined, but he was able to get in. Nobody really liked him cause he was unlucky. One day in the confusion he charged ahead of his company and scared off all the Confederates single handed. After that, he became well liked by most people and soon rose Corporal. He showed his bravery when he spent a week in enemy territory. By the end of the war he rose up to Second Lieutenant.

I liked this book because it was suspenseful and I didn't want to put it it down. I recommend it to anyone who likes historical fiction books like the "My Name is America" series or learning about wars.

I have been a student of the Civil War and a reenactor for over a decade. I have read many journals and reports and have even "experienced" life on the march and in battle first hand. The Author does a superb job of capturing the camaraderie, petty jealousy and drudgery of camp life. Many of the camps scenes would be very familiar to any reenactor. He also vividly captures the excitement and devastation of battle without being overly gory or morose. His depiction of a scared young boy making his way back to camp from behind enemy lines was so exciting I couldn't put the book down. Underlying a vivid description of life during the Civil War is a charming story of a boy coming of age. By the final chapter, the boy who thought he was jinxed has realized what an important contributor to the war effort he really was. Though written for a child to enjoy, anyone with a love of history will find the time spent reading this delightful story well spent. My Dad gave me this thoroughly enjoyable book for Christmas. I would recommend it as a great gift for anyone wishing to develop or continue an interest in the Civil War.

The Journal of James Edmon Pease
BY: James Edmon Pease
The Journal of James Edmon Pease is a thrilling book. The book starts out on a battlefield. Private Pease, Lt. Toms, and other solders are the characters. Private Pease is brave, kind, and lively. He is brave because he volunteered to go and fight in the Civil War. He was also brave because he was willing to sacrifice his life for his country. He wrote a journal thinking there was a curse on the journalists when all of them had died. He is kind because he looks out for others, gives them necessary items like clothes and weapons, and helps them when he can. There aren't a lot of lively details but he sacrifices, gives, and helps. Pease takes us through various battles through his eyes and emotions. I wish this book would be have ended with Pease having a family of his own.
If you like wars you would really love this book because this book is about a boy named James Edmond Pease and he is out in the woods with his army. They stay out there for mounths and mounths. They are getting ready to fight another army. They are called the Rebs. they are out there getting ready. The war is on. Does his army win or do they loose? Does James get shot? Does he die? Read this book to find out. It is a exciting book. i think you would have a great time with this book. I liked it because I like wars. Those books are really good for me.
