    You-Are-There History

    Under Siege! Is another wonderful "you are there" history experience for young readers. How amazing to be able to read the words of three people who as children experienced, firsthand, the siege of Vicksburg.
    Not only does one get a sense of what it must to have been like to cower in the hastily dug caves while the Union army shelled the town, but one also gets a full accounting of the battle from the Union side, through the eyes of Frederick Grant, who stood beside his father, Ulysses Grant, one of the giants of the Civil War.
    With the maps and the accounts of the battles leading up to Vicksburg, readers can see just how important geography was in the war. They'll get a clear idea of the strategic importance of Vicksburg to the Union cause.
    Children also will be intrigued with the photographs and drawings - especially the newspaper printed on the back of wallpaper during the siege.
    I've bought two copies of this fascinating book for two 12-year-old grandsons, who are history buffs.
