Great read for kids and adults. This book gives kids the overveiw of the four days of battle and the military plans each army had. It even shows real pictures of the battle and other pictures to. Recommended for all ages 8 and up

I am an adult who enjoys reading children's books on History because it gives me an easy to understand overview of the topic. This book did just that and makes the battle timeline and events easy to read and understand. It is something I would recommend to do a quick read before visiting Gettysburg. You can decide from that point if you want to pursue a greater understanding of the event. I also liked the drawings a lot.
