With stats on everything from battles to weapons,these numbers give young readers a look at the clash between North and South that cost America its greatest loss of life.

Teacher Librarian - Sara Catherine Howard

"Here is a cleverly assembled take on the Civil War by looking at numerical facts...about battles, horses lost in battle, women in service.  Critical thinking questions are included with a glossary, additional reading, and an index." - Teacher Librarian

School Library Journal - Jennifer Price, Buncombe County Public Libraries, NC

"Building a series of books primarily around numbers is a bold move, but it pays off in spades here. A brief paragraph at the beginning of each chapter establishes context. Subsequent content is presented via statistics, some of which are simply written out and others of which appear in pie charts, bar graphs, or timetables. . . .The dynamic use of statistics makes for irresistible reading. This ideal supplement for history classes will appeal to reluctant readers. Consider for hi-lo collections, too." - School Library Journal

"This clever take on American history hooks readers with compelling statistics, often presented as infographics. . . .Short introductory paragraphs provide background and context, while smart graphics, including pie charts, bar graphs, and maps, illuminate the impact of these wars in terms of economics, government action, and human losses. . . .these books will appeal to upper elementary and middle school students looking for something a bit different with their history." - School Library Journal
