Cassie: The Girl with the Hero's Heart
This is Cassie's story - the adventures of a brave Maryland farm girl living just minutes from Antietam, the site of the fiercest battle ever fought in the Civil War. Never did she dream she would work alongside her hero Clara Barton in a make-shift hospital, meet President Lincoln, or help give the gift of freedom to a girl who would become her very best friend.
