Gr 6 UpThis book focuses on the often- confusing events before, during, and after the Battle of Gettysburg. The introduction gives a fine summary of what both sides were experiencing in the summer of 1863, and why the skirmish in a small town in Pennsylvania was important to the course of the war. The author then concentrates on each day of the battle, with detailed information and maps that show troop movements. All of the black-and-white reproductions are good, and there are many interesting sidebar articles, ranging from biographies of the major participants to the life of a nurse in a field hospital to what type of rations the typical soldier received. The annotated bibliography includes some interesting choices. A solid introduction that will be especially welcome for readers with little background on the Civil War.Elizabeth M.
