Gr 5-8-Ingram offers a standard introduction to Davis and his prewar career in the military and government, and then follows him through his role as president of the Confederacy and later years. Sidebar articles profile his daughter and Mary Elizabeth Bowser, his African-American servant who may have been a spy. King's title is a little more exciting-there are many descriptions of various battles and, of course, a description of Sherman's "March to the Sea." The Union general's relationship with the Confederacy's Joseph Johnston, which started as enmity and after the war turned into friendship, adds another dimension to this biography. Both titles have well-chosen black-and-white and full-color reproductions and bullet points in the margins that point out general events that occurred at various times in the subjects' lives.-Elizabeth M.
