Triangle Histories introduce a new concept to American history series. Each title in this collection interweaves and overlaps with others in its own unique way. And each title provides a different perspective on the subject. For example, The Battle of Vicksburg, the biography Ulysses S. Grant, and the biography Abraham Lincoln, overlap and intersect at a number of points. Grant was the Union commander at Vicksburg at a time when Lincoln was under great pressure to replace the general.

Because the Triangle Histories provide a format in which major subjects and themes can be considered from various angles, each collection offers a truly unique way to learn and understand the topic more completely. Each book stands alone, but as a set, the Civil War collection forms a powerful and engaging way in which to learn about one of the most painful eras our nation has ever endured.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-8-In each book, the main focus is on the conflict, its geography and personalities, along with explanations of how each battle favored the North or the South. In September, 1862, Antietam pitted forces commanded by George McClellan against those of Robert E. Lee. In America's bloodiest day of war, the combined losses of both sides totaled 22,719 casualties. In July, 1863, Union and Confederate forces met at Gettysburg and engaged in the greatest battle of the war. Bull Run at Manassas in July, 1861, brought picnickers and sightseers from Washington, DC, many of whom believed this would be the one large battle of a short war. The recitation of casualty numbers and an explanation of how the Civil War was the first modern war with its weapons and use of technology, including the railroad, are significant features of these titles. Each volume includes a few quotes from primary sources and sidebars that highlight personalities and other topics. Full-color maps, black-and-white photos, reproductions, and illustrations accompany the texts. Additional choices for Civil War buffs.
