Can anyone suggest some middle grade historical fiction books on the Civil War---this book is about a young son searching for his father. It is a chapter book for ages 9-12. The story takes place in Mississippi.

Have you checked out Shades of Gray by Caroline Reeder (the 1990 historical fiction novel, not the more famous book of a similar name!) and the River Between Us by Richard Peck? Rifles for Watie also comes to mind. How recent do you need them to be?
