I really liked Thunder on The Tennessee because it used a lot of detail and feelings. What I mean by feelings is that it really expressed Will's feelings, Will is the main character. Throughout the book I felt for Will, I felt bad that he had to leave his girl friend also because he thought the battle would only last a few months. But he didn't let leaving the girl behind stop him. The author did a great job writing this book.
I felt really bad for Will when he was on his first day and he spent the whole day fighting and marching. Will's dad was a colonel. He and Will were really close. They spent all of Will's birthday's together Will wanted to be just like his dad. But on the final charge when his dad was the last officer left he was shot. To balls hit him in the chest. He was taken to the medical tent but only lasted a few hours. I think that Will really had to toughen up because of hid fathers death. I think he showed great character.
I think that the problem was basically the war because Will was taken from his family with only his dad and then his dad died. I think the problem was that he had to toughen up after his dad died. I think the problem was actually resolved when he went home.
