Oliver Optic is the pseudonym of the American teacher, noted academic and author of juvenile literature William Taylor Adams. First published in 1894, "The Blue and the Gray Army Series" is a set of six volumes: each volume is a new fascinating story. "A Lieutenant at Eighteen", the third volume of "The Blue and the Gray Army Series", tells the story of a young man, Deck Lyon, who became a lieutenant at eighteen, when the first gun of the Great Rebellion set the nation on fire, starting the war, transforming the boys into men. A classic example of Adams' sometimes rather careless, but very natural style, the story captures the readers' attention at once.
