Editorial Reviews

SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL: United No More!

Grade 4-7. An interesting and readable introduction to the Civil War. Drawn from primary sources, the seven short narratives reflect the experiences of people on both sides of the conflict. Two selections, those of William H. Carney, a volunteer in the Massachusetts 54th Colored Infantry, and David Farragut, the naval commander who stormed Mobile Bay, have plenty of battlefield action.
