Nathan Sadasivan was eleven-years-old at the time of the Dear America Writing Contest, which was also the first writing contest he had entered. He was from Brighton, Michigan. In the third grade, Sadasivan's family visited several Civil War sites while on a road trip, which inspired him to become a "Civil War buff." While writing "The Diary of Edward Daniel Phillips," he experienced writer's block but was able to push through it to finish the story.[1]
