A Junior Library Guild Selection

This is the book that introduced modern readers to the courageous 15-year-old girl who survived the bloodiest battle ever to take place on U.S. soil – the Battle of Gettysburg – and told the exciting story in gripping detail. In July 1863, Tillie Pierce became an unlikely heroine of the Civil War (1861-1865). Tillie and other women and girls like her found themselves trapped during this critical three-day battle in southern Pennsylvania. Without training, but with enormous courage and compassion, Tillie and other Gettysburg citizens helped save the lives of countless wounded Union and Confederate soldiers. With beautiful photography and detailed descriptions by acclaimed young adult author Tanya Anderson, Tillie Pierce: Teen Eyewitness to the Battle of Gettysburg takes readers behind the scenes. And through Tillie's own words, the story of one of the Civil War's most famous battles comes alive. Benjamin Franklin Award gold medalist.
