    Highly Recommended

    My Review: B is for Battle Cry: A Civil War Alphabet: The beautifully illustrations of this book take readers on an A -Z journey into the Civil War, introducing them to the renowned leaders, historic battles, inspiring events and documents of the Civil War.

    A is for Abraham Lincoln and his history of becoming the 16th president of the United States. H is for Hardtack, the soldiers each received 10 pieces of hardtack as part of heir daily rations. S is for Spies, Wild Rose was a lady who spied for the South. I highly recommend this book for classroom reading.

    A Civil War Alphabet for All Ages

    This book is the perfect introduction for both young and adult readers, to the American Civil War. With poetic verse, Bauer describes the events of the times, and the people swept up in them. Younger readers will like to hear the story read aloud, or sung to the music of Stephen Foster's "Hard Times Come Again No More," a song of the times. Sidebars on each page offer more in-depth information; even adult readers will find something new to learn here. (Raised by a Civil War buff as I was, I'd never heard of a Zouave!)

    Historical artist David Geister's paintings beautifully illustrate each alphabet page, and convey the sense of both sweeping events and very basic human emotion. It would be hard for me to say which illustration I liked best.

    Geister's website,, offers a free music download of both Foster's music and the book's lyrical verses. As the mom of would-be historians, I highly recommend this book and its multimedia approach to learning about one of the most pivotal events in American history.
