Immerse your students in these 27 gripping accounts of men, women, and children-from the North and the South-who lived, fought, and survived the Civil War. Following the same format as Voices of the American Revolution, nationally acclaimed author and storyteller Kendall Haven takes you on a journey through the Civil War, giving students a well-rounded understanding of this four-year upheaval. All characters in the book are real, and the stories are historically accurate.

Reviews
