Containing more than 130 entries of the most important people, places, and events of the Civil War, this handy reference book is great for browsing and is also a compact introduction to the Civil War and to mid-nineteenth-century America. Designed especially for children in upper-elementary and early junior-high grades, each cogent entry is self-contained and full of vivid lore. Organized alphabetically, the entries cover many facets of the war-including slavery, Abraham Lincoln's role as president, nursing, generals, battles, and the home front. Chock-full of historical photographs, drawings, and maps, this entertaining guide is an invaluable companion to any study of the Civil War.
