Tom Carter, the drummer boy who joined the 1st US Sharpshooters under Col. Hiram Berdan, was based upon the real-life John Clem, a drummer boy who joined the 22nd Michigan Infantry at the age of 10, and became the youngest Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO) in US military history, when he was promoted to Sergeant at the age of 12 in 1863, for bravery at the Battle of Chickamauga. Clem retired from the US Army in 1915 as a Brigadier General, the last Civil War veteran to retire from the Army, and was promoted to Major General by a special act of Congress in 1916. Clem passed away in 1937 at the age of 85, and is buried at Arlington National Cemetery. See more »
