  • Welcome to Kansas
  • A Dangerous Promise (The Orphan Train Adventures) By: Joan Lowery Nixon Setting- set in 1861 in the Civil War
  • You guys aren't old enough
  • The book starts out with the main character Mike, meeting a friend next door. The friend, Todd, teaches Mike the drums and all the army calls and they get a fantasy where they ran away from home and joined the Union army.
  • I'll show you
  • You are in You are not
  • Please let him in with me
  • So they decided to follow through, and they run away from home to Kansas City, where they know that there is a Union Army Division in need of musicians. Day and night, rain and sunshine they finally arrive in the state of Kansas
  • The only problem is that both boys were underage; you had to be 16 to join the army. Todd looks older than he is, but Mike doesn't.
  • The Sergeant lets Todd in the army but asks Mike to go home. But in a last effort of desperation he started beating all the army calls on his drum and the Sergeant is impressed with his drumming.
  • After the bloody Battle of Wilson's Creek, his brigade crashes into General McCulloch's Missouri Guard. A wounded Mike is left for dead.
