3.0 out of 5 stars On Picket Duty and Other Tales consists of 4 short ... 10 April 2015
By turnerbethany - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
On Picket Duty and Other Tales consists of 4 short stories - On Picket Day, The King of Clubs & The Queen of Hearts, The Cross on the Old Church Tower, and The Death of John (an excerpt from Hospital Sketches). Each story has its own little moral to it and is interesting on its own, but there was no overarching theme.

3.0 out of 5 stars Short storys 31 Jan. 2013
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
3 short stories, one of which is a republishing of part of hospital sketches. The main soldier in each story dies. Luckily for the most part not as preachy as some of her other works.

4.0 out of 5 stars On Picket Duty was the best of the short stories in this book 28 Aug. 2014
By Mike Regan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
On Picket Duty was the best of the short stories in this book. I find it interesting to read the stroies of authers who lived much closer to the historical events about which they are writing than we are.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dated but nonetheless touching 19 Jun. 2012
By MamaSylvia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
eBook downloaded free from Gutenberg. Short collection of short pieces, set during the Civil War. Besides the title piece, The King of Clubs and the Queen of Hearts, The Cross On the Old Church Tower, and The Death of John (labelled a true story) are included.

Although quite dated, this collection will remind the reader of Alcott's skill at tearjerkers. The Death of John seems to be an expanded version of a story included in Hospital Sketches. Keep a box of kleenex handy when reading this! Spelling and grammar were acceptable, formatting was occasionally a little wonky but not to the point that it distracted me from the story.
