Pink and Say
by Patricia Polacco

This true Civil War story­ begins when Pink, an African American slave-turned-Union soldier, finds Say, an Ohio farm boy, also a Union soldier, wounded in battle. Pink carries Say to his mother’s nearby farm where the 15-year-olds find a pocket of peace and friendship amid the violence that rages around them. They share their stories, including Say’s brief encounter with President Abraham Lincoln. Pink and Say is a celebration of compassion, humanity, and fighting for what’s right.
