School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-9-From new approaches to studying the Civil War to hands-on learning activities, these 27 stories describe men, women, and children who were caught up in the conflict as civilians or soldiers. Based on fact, the stories are told with fictionalized dialogue ("-dialogue has been inferred based on known personality traits and outcomes of conversations and events. When they were available, I used actual recorded conversations and statements"). While the characters were real people, they are not well-known names. Each selection is preceded by an overview of story-specific events and a short biographical sketch of the actual person. Follow-up questions and activities are excellent. Students are encouraged to do research in the library and on the Internet, and the reference section lists nonfiction, fiction, and electronic resources. Unfortunately, the book has numerous errors. Fort Sumter is repeatedly referred to as Fort "Sumpter"; Ulysses S. Grant's victory was at Fort Donelson, not Fort "Donaldson"; it's Confederate General Beauregard, not "Beaurigard"; and Ambrose Burnside, not "Amos" Burnside, fought at the First Battle of Bull Run.-Patricia Ann Owens, Wabash Valley College, Mt.
