"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Grade 6-8-Bloodiest Days recounts the First and Second Battles of Bull Run, Shiloh, the Peninsula Campaign, Antietam, and Fredericksburg. Why Fight? begins with the Founding Fathers' agreement to disagree about slavery; subsequent chapters cover the Mexican War, Dred Scott, John Brown, Lincoln's election in 1860, and secession. Thorough and accurate writing and excellent organization characterize both books. Other outstanding attributes are the use of historical photographs and reproductions, contemporary graphics, maps, and engaging sidebars of historical trivia, as well as an exceptional use of color and page layout. Absorbing reading, these books will be a welcome addition to Civil War collections.
