about this item
“Jumpin’ the Rails!” is a time-travel adventure set in the American Civil War and present day.
Two small-town Alabama boys, Aleks and Adam, grow up in the midst of Civil War reenactments at the Fort, but when they discover a time window in the backyard of The Griggs House, their real-life 1860s adventure begins. They travel on the nineteenth century railroad and it takes them to legendary battles and places. They come face to face with Oates, Lee and Pickett, meet their ancestors and encounter hostile Johnnies and Yanks. The teenage boys are much like spectators at a football game but what they once considered a game turns real at Gettysburg and through a turn of events the best friends become separated by time and gain the attention of those who will stop at nothing to gain knowledge of time-travel.
