Bull Run to Gettysburg: Early Battles of the Civil War

After the first shots of the Civil War were fired in 1861, both sides thought victory would come quickly. But they were wrong. Battle followed battle, and the death toll climbed. The North and the South were unprepared for the long bloody conflict ahead. Then the two armies met at Gettysburg, a battle that would change the course of history.

Library Media Connection - Lois McNicol

"These slim volumes succinctly present events in the war between the states. The major battles describe leaders, strategy, new technology used, and the outcome. Each book includes text boxes with longer quotations derived from journals, newspapers, and speeches. Numerous quotes also appear throughout the text to give a personal flavor to the historical events. Colorful paintings, posters, and maps depict events, and each book contains a unique timeline, additional readings, glossary, and source notes. Login information to the publisher’s web portal is included. However, most students probably will not make use of FactHound since the same links can easily be found using any child-friendly search engine. Purchase where fresh copies about the Civil War are needed. Index. Recommended." - Library Media Connection

Series Made Simple; School Library Journal - Mary Mueller

"These objective and readable books discuss the causes, battles, and politics of the Civil War and Reconstruction. Authors incorporate primary-source materials into the texts, and a limited number of sidebars add additional information or longer primary-source excerpts. Layouts are clean and attractive, with a large font and reproductions of period illustrations and photos. The bibliographies include books and websites, and the further-reading lists point readers toward vetted websites through FactHound. Coverage is not comprehensive, but this series will help students understand the era’s most important issues and events. A quality choice for reports." - Series Made Simple; School Library Journal
