Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 10 Up

Patrick Cleburne was an Irish immigrant and Confederate soldier who quickly rose to the rank of Major General. He is best known for his 1864 proposal that emancipated slaves should be allowed to join the Confederate Army, an act that marred his military reputation. He died soon after in battle. Cleburne's story is well written as Murphy merges struggles on the battlefield with Cleburne's courtship of Susan Tarleton, exploring their budding relationship and examining the war from her standpoint. The artwork is well defined and realistic, and the use of overlapping images in the skirmishes gives a chaotic feel to the battle scenes. The author brings a fresh perspective to the war, examining a part of it that is often overlooked. This graphic novel has high crossover appeal for any Civil War history buff and will help teens consider the many angles from which our past may be seen.-Kelliann Bogan, Colby-Sawyer College, New London, NH

    An Exciting Graphic Novel of the Civil War

    Thank you to the author for not just publishing yet another history book of the Civil War. "Cleburne" belays some commonly held stereotypes of Southerners during the Civil War. It is an extremely well-illustrated dramatic graphic novel that I found to be highly enjoyable and enlightning. It goes beyond the usual info about Pat Cleburne's charismatic leadership on the battlefield. The novel is very graphic in its visual depiction of combat and is not some sort of Civil War comic book for young children. I would recommend Cleburne to the fans of graphic novels and to anyone interested in the Civil War.

    I also reccomend "Guns of the South" a novel of "alternate" history by Harry Turtledove, which is not only a blast to read, but is often more insightful to the southerner's condrum of slavery than many "serious" works.
    I will also reccomend "The Flying Dutchmen" by Andrew Suhrer; a recent novel about a despised regiment of German immigrants fighting for the Union Army. It is a quickly paced page-turner and very entertaining. I recommend both GOTS and TFD to any fan of fiction and/or history regardless of interest in the Civil War.
