Essay 4 Outline Intro: How the number of active child soldiers grew to become 300,000 across the globe. 1: History. Precedent unfortunately through Lincoln. In 1861, President Lincoln announced that boys under eighteen could enlist only with their  parents’ consent.” Although he later prohibited any enlistment of those under eighteen. “But heavy  casualties led recruiting officers to look the other way. Drummers, messengers, hospital orderlies, and often as fully fledged soldiers. Carried canteens,  bandages, and stretchers and assisted surgeons and nurses. Many signed as drummers who relayed  officer’s commands, signaling reveille, roll call, company drill, and taps. Original motive for enlisting varied, including patriotism and a desire to escape the boring routine of farm  life or an abusive family. http://www.digitalhistory.uh.edu/learning_history/children_civilwar/child_soldiers.cfm
