EBEN TYNE, POWDERMONKEY by Patricia Beatty & Phillip Robbins


Eben Tyne - 1.jpg

In this heart-pounding Civil War tale, thirteen-year-old Eben Tyne takes to the sea to support the Confederate navy, eventually becoming a ‘powdermonkey’ aboard the Merrimack, a ship destined to play a major role in the naval history of the American Civil War. Eben Tyne, Powdermonkey shows today’s readers the far too infrequently presented part taken by the South in a single, very significant engagement of the American Civil War— the Battle of Hampton Roads.
