The war is hitting home for Sallie.  First her brother leaves to fight.  And now soldiers have come and taken just about everything from the family.  Even Sallie's precious horse.  When the horse returns a few days later, Sallie begins to think about the brave horses who were helping with the war on both sides.  With the help of her friend, she comes up with the idea of creating a book about war horses.  Isaac will paint the pictures and Sallie will write to officers asking them about their horses.  No one believes that she will hear back from them but Sallie knows that there is something very special about a war horse.
