School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-8-An identical introductory page in both books describes how this war affected nearly all U.S. citizens; it is followed by a well-labeled, full-color, double-page map of the war's major battles. In the first title, Ashby profiles figures who sided with the Union and the Confederate causes. She includes military heroes such as Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, Stonewall Jackson, Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., Sam Watkins, and William H. Carney and civilians such as Dorothea Dix, Mathew Brady, Robert Smalls, Rose O'Neal Greenhow, Charlotte Forten, and Walt Whitman. Mediocre-quality photos and reproductions appear throughout. Gettysburg explains how the Union and Confederate troops crossed paths in Gettysburg and details the three days of battle. The final chapter describes its aftereffects, and the text and photographs give readers a sense of the horror that was endured. Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address is included. After reading this volume, students will have a better understanding of our country's battle to survive as a union. Both books would be useful for reports.-Deborah Rothaug, Pasadena Elementary School, Plainview, NY (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
