Call me Kate

Call Me Kate is a great read set in the Civil War era.  Fourteen year old Kate's family lives in Pennsylvania in a mining town.  Of course, the mines were very dangerous at that time, with no compensation for injuries or death.  Kate's life is tied to the perils of the time and place where she lives. 

As the Civil War goes on, Kate takes a job at the home of a rich family.  She risks it all to help a friend in the Molly Maguires.  They play a role in protesting the draft.  Yes, you heard right - there were draft dodgers in the Civil War era.
