This past year, our younger son Jeremy, now age twelve, did an in depth study of the American War Between the States. We used several good resources, such as Fields of Fury by James M. McPherson and the Scholastic Encyclopedia of the Civil War edited by Catherine Clinton. Another one that really helped to put the events and people of that major period in our nation’s history together in an understandable way was the Civil War volume of the DK Publishing’s “Battles and Leaders” series, which is a guide to the battles and leading figures of the war that tore America apart. As with all other Dorling Kindersley books, there is a wealth of visual images, including pictures of artifacts, portraits of important people, battlefield paintings, and numerous maps, all of which complement the very lucid and easy to read text which chronicles year by year the important events of that era. It is a great book for both children and adults who want to study more about the Civil War.
