Soldier's Heart Overview

Soldier’s Heart is a historical novel written by Gary Paulsen. The novel is based on the life of Charley Goddard, a youth who at fifteen years old lied about his age and joined to fight for the Union army during the Civil War. Charley fought in many battles and was finally wounded at Gettysburg. After the war, Charley didn’t recover from the trauma of the horrors he’d seen, nor did he fully recover from his battle wounds, which brought on his death when he was only twenty-three years old.
