The Gaslight Boys

From 1861 - 1865 a storm rolled through our nation and in its wake left behind a path of death and destruction.  Over 100,000 children lost everything they had come to know including both parents.  This tragedy took place during the Civil War and sadly for years after; during a period known as Reconstruction.  What became of those children? How were they instrumental in shaping the future of our society?  These questions are answered in my series of books called, “The Gaslight Boys.” Charles Dickens is credited with being the original Gaslight Boy, but there were many other Gaslight Children created by the war.  The Gaslight Boys series brings to life the hardships, the conditions and individual struggles buried and/ or forgotten by time. These are the stories of the young men and women who grew up to become great in their own right, men and women of the great society.  Some of them became great, some became outlaws, and some died short of the chance. The Gaslight Boy novels are their stories. ___ John T. Wayne
