    Boy soldiers is just war crime; but then, in the opinion of a Gulf War Veteran acquaintance of mine, "war is crime."

    Interesting film on historical event w.r.t. juvenile soldiers: Blood_Diamond_(film); and yet another religious conflict: Children's Crusade.

    Boys were not drafted into the Union or Confederate army below age 18, AFAIK. Volunteers could be extremely young. Young boys served as drummers.
