The Junior Reserves were 17-year-old boys drafted in the last year of the war, as the Confederacy faced a disastrous shortfall in manpower. These young men were originally intended to guard bridges and depots in North Carolina, but the exigencies of the war drew them into combat. The Junior Reserves saw action in a number of minor clashes in eastern North Carolina and southeastern Virginia, as well as the battles of Fort Fisher and Bentonville.An authoritative 120-page history of the Junior Reserves begins the volume. The history is followed by a complete roster and service records of the officers and men that served in the Junior Reserves. A thorough index completes the volume.
