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
