Ten-year-old Jacob cannot believe his ears when a Yankee soldier asks for his piece of matzoh. Even worse, his family invited the Jewish Yankee to Seder! While Jacob is bitter about the South losing the Civil War, the corporal is still able to have an open discussion with his family about freedom and slavery—apt themes for Passover.
