Memoir of Confederate veteran Royall W. Figg (1841-1897). Figg served with Parker's Virginia Battery, which was comprised of a significant number of very young men and boys, thus the title of his book. Parker's Battery saw action at Sharpsburg, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, and in Tennessee. "Reinforced by imagination, these recollections by a member of the Parker Battery describe several major battles as well as life in Point Lookout prison" - Nevins. Figg subsequently served as the company historian. COULTER 160. DORNBUSCH II, 1159. NEVINS I, p.88.
