About this title

Synopsis:

Carrie Berry and her family lived in Atlanta, Georgia, during the Civil War. In 1864 the Union Army battled the Confederacy for Atlanta. Cannons boomed and fires burned around Carrie and her family. Through it all, 10 year old Carrie recorded her experiences in her diary. Follow her story of challenges and triumphs.

From Booklist:

What is it like for a child when an enemy army invades her city, looting and burning houses around her? What’s it like for a 10-year-old to huddle in a cellar with her family while explosive shells fall around their home? The year is 1864. The city is Atlanta. The enemy is the Union army. Although the victor may write the history books, young Carrie Berry has her say as well. During the occupation and destruction of her city, she kept a diary, represented here through excerpts over a five-month period. Spelling and grammar mistakes are left intact, though sometimes corrections and clarifications appear in brackets within the text. The diary entries are accompanied by text boxes defining terms (corpse, torment, blockade) and explaining events such as bread riots and the sabotage of rail lines. This book from the new First-Person Histories series offers students a unique perspective on events. Grades 3-6. --Carolyn Phelan
