Civil War Rememberedby Carl Lowe
The Civil War Remembered is a wonderfully designed book that satisfies curiosities about one of the defining moments of America. In this short but detailed book you will find many vintage portraits and photographs of artifacts that make learning about the war fascinating. As you read about each significant battle, you will find out interesting facts about everything from the birth of fast food to stationery embellished with "Jefferson Davis Neckties" (nooses). The profiles of the characters in the war - people like Abraham Lincoln, Stonewall Jackson, and Eli Whitney - will personalize the story of the war, while informative descriptions on the inventions of the era - the cotton gin and the telegraph, for instance - will explain how times were shifting in the country. Much like the way young boys and elderly men enlisted in the Civil War, both students and adults want to read this valuable introduction to the war.
