What is it About?

Non-fictional juvenile book on history of Civil War.

My Thoughts:

As I have said before for adult who do not remember much from history classes these books for children can be a great beginners guide to what you don’t know.

The book teaches you about what the Civil War was about, who was in it and when it took place.

I like that the book tells you about whether you would stayed in school if you were young. It gives a background racially what was going on and tells you about who was made famous or was better known because of the Civil War.

I think the book is excellent to use to gain information although personally I was more interested in the Revolutionary War then the Civil War.  I know it is a big part of American history and I am glad I know more about it now.

I probably could use this book, as I know so little about the Civil War. I hope it's okay that I linked to your review on the Civil War book reviews page on War Through the Generations.
