Description

Product Description

Detailed illustrations, informative annotations, and more provide young readers with a comprehensive examination of the war between the Union and Confederate armies.

From School Library Journal

Grade 4 Up-This illustrated history offers a stunning array of reproductions and photographs of the sites, people, and artifacts associated with the war. The book is divided into 29 two-page chapters covering such topics as the slavery debate, the election of 1860, raising armies, camp life, women during the war, Gettysburg, and the Confederacy surrender. A paragraph of text introduces each topic and informative, often lengthy, captions accompany the numerous black-and-white and full-color illustrations. This title will make an outstanding addition to collections of Civil War history and will draw visual learners. The many dramatic photos may inspire students to seek more in-depth material.

From Booklist

Gr. 5-8. The American Civil War becomes accessible in the familiar decision of Eyewitness books. The double-page spread format uses brief text, many illustrations, and lengthy captions in very small type. Illustrations include period photographs, engravings, and documents, as well as photos of artifacts such as rifles, flags, and uniforms. Arranged roughly chronologically, the book begins with discussions of states'' rights and slavery and ends with Reconstruction. In between, it discusses some major battles but focuses primarily on broader topics, such as "The Underground Railroad," "Great commanders," and "Army camp life." A highly visual treatment of the war. Carolyn Phelan

I bought this book for my Grandson, he is 8, loves to read and like all great kids has some very detailed questions he would like answered,
There is a entire series of these "Eye Witness" books.
They are great.

He had his questions answered about what cannons and swords are like, and yes he understands now people die and he also understands what a Patriot is and that sometimes a mans duty is to protect his family and Country at all costs.

But it''s not a bloody gory book, It''s reality and done very well,
It''s about 80 pages, He read it in 2 days tops and remembered everything in the book,
Check this series out, I was and am very impressed with them.
They have books on many topics of wars and conflicts we have been in as a Country. A outstanding reality History book for a change that speaks the truth in the details a 8 year old is satisfied with.

DK has a great formula for introducing topics to kids. Beautiful graphics, excellent layout and good summaries of important facts surrounding their topics.

Such is the same for their Civil War book. For the child wanting (or needing) an introduction to the Civil War this book will serve well. The pictures draw the attention of the browser and the text gives a pretty good brief summary of the why, who and what for the reader.

An excellent addition for your child''s library.

DK is great at creating books full of high-quality photos. This book includes great photos of Civil War soldiers in their uniforms. It also has photos of soldiers lying dead on a battlefield and a Southern home riddled with holes from canon fire, photos I had never seen in my history books. It has good, close-up photos and drawings of the guns, grenades, hardtack biscuits and other everyday items used by soldiers back then. Very interesting!
