Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara Youngblood
This is a wonderful resource for teaching or learning the history of the Civil War in the United States. Vintage photographs, maps, and chronicles of battles convey an accurate picture of what happened during the mid-1800's. I have been reading Mr. Lincoln's Drummer by G. Clifton Wisler to a third grade class and am excited about using the Encyclopedia as a companion to the novel. Short vignettes such as "Pets in Camp" or "Camp Lingo" bring to light little known facts about life during the Civil War. It is all told year-by-year through accounts, profiles of ordinary and famous people and sidebars.
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Clinton approaches this complex period from many perspectives: the people (men, women, and children, African Americans, Native Americans); the politics; the battles; the lives of the soldiers and those left at home; the literature; and the propaganda. Her year-by-year description incorporates eyewitness accounts, diary entries, and clearly captioned full-color and black-and-white maps, photos, and reproductions that bring the people and events alive. Unfortunately, photo citations are not included in the otherwise comprehensive index. There are numerous fact boxes, definitions, "Did You Know?" entries, and sidebars. Other than identifying the speakers or writers of the primary documents used, no documentation is given. Joy Hakim's War, Terrible War (Oxford, 1999) is more detailed, but less likely to be picked up for casual reading or research. Clinton's successful overview is aimed at students with little or no knowledge of this period. A clear, accurate, and objective presentation.-Peg Glisson, Mendon Center Elementary School, Pittsford, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|

    one of the best resources I've seen for studying the American Civil War

    This visually attractive book has lots of photographs, drawings, other illustrations, and informational sidebars related to the American Civil War. While other books for young people on the subject that I have read often approach the War Between the States from some topical standpoint, often making it very difficult to understand the time line of the war, this book gives a year-by-year summary, beginning with a chapter "Before the War" explaining the background and causes that led up to the fighting, and then following with a chapter for each of the five years of the war, the last also talking about the aftermath of the war and its effects, thus providing a good chronological overview of the conflict. Major battles of each year are detailed, and there is a large map at the beginning showing the locations of these battles. The text is very readable. This would make an excellent resource for elementary students who are studying this period of American history and would even be beneficial for older students as well.
