Pink and Say
Audience: 2nd Grade - 4th Grade
This Civil War story is a true one, passed down through Patricia Polacco's family. Sheldon Russell Curtis (Say) describes how he was wounded in battle, and left for dead somewhere in Georgia, when another Union soldier found him. Pinkus Aylee, a black soldier, carried Say back to his mother, who nursed this stranger back to health, and cared for the two boys. Pink and Say shared an incredible bond, broken only when they were captured by Confederate soldiers, and taken to Andersonville prison, where only one survived.
