Jim Murphy did it again!!!!!
This is profoundly moving history. This book is about a single day -- not only was it the deadliest day in American history but it was also the day that turned the war from a war about state's rights into a fight for freedom.. The writing, the images and the voices of the participants are so powerful you feel like you are there. This book is also a perfect window into the history of the war as a whole. I am a Jim Murphy fan and this book delivered.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Exciting Account of Civil War Battle
This book is an exciting and enlightening account of one of the major battles of the Civil War--in fact, a turning point in the war. Murphy's vivid narrative covers events leading up to the battle, the battle itself, and the aftermath. As the outcome of the battle seems to favor first one side and then the other, readers will find themselves unable to put the book down. Through excerpts from diaries and letters, Murphy brings to life the personalities of both the generals who were in command and the ordinary soldiers who fought heroically. An epic story, wonderfully told, ideal for readers 8 to 12 and fascinating for older readers as well.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
