Who are you?

I, John Ron, live in a decent sized house on Long Island, New York with a mother, a father and two siblings. I'm 17 years old , I have a brother who is 13 years old and a sister who is 11 years old. I worked at the marketplace at which my father is the manager. When the war started my father got recruited as a corporal so I became a private under his command. I decided to join the Union because slavery is cruel and my father is a corporal on the Union side.
