"For many young learners, it can never hurt to make history more palatable. The “Graphic History” series aims to do just that, and it achieves its goal superbly. Having had no prior experience with graphic novels, this reviewer was not sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised by the high level of historical accuracy, including direct quotes, vividly realistic illustrations, and abundant additional resources for readers who want to learn more now that their interest has been piqued, including the full text of the Gettysburg Address. The complex and devastating issues of the Civil War are understandably simplified here and the time line condensed, but different viewpoints are provided by various characters’ dialogue and the important information is provided in additional text blocks." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database

Through the Looking Glass Children's Book Review

"In May of 1663 the Confederate general, Robert E. Lee decided to take the American Civil war north into the state of Pennsylvania. The Civil war had been raging back and forth for two years now and Lee wanted to force President Lincoln’s hand. Soon the armies of both sides were converging on the little town of Gettysburg and on July 1st a fierce battle began. The battle continued for two more days and when it ended on July 3rd, each side of the conflict had sustained about 22,000 casualties. The battle at Gettysburg was the most costly battle of the war and the events which took place there had a profound effect on the American people. Indeed it was such a momentous event that President Lincoln gave a speech in the little town in November of that year. The speech which he gave was short but over the years his words have moved people all over the world to think about the cost of all wars and conflicts. In this easy to follow account of one the most famous battles of all time, the author not only describes what occurred at Gettysburg but he also provides his readers with ample background information about slavery, the grievances of the southern states, and the civil war in general. With action packed graphic-rich artwork and additional information at the back of the book, this title serves as a wonderful introduction for young readers who are interested in the American Civil War." - Through the Looking Glass Children's Book Review
