A short account of one of the most important, if not the most important, battles of the American Civil War as seen throught the eyes of the President's son, Tad Lincoln.

Tad regularly accompanied his father to the War Department's telegraph office and wathed as the red and blue pins were moved up and down the map and the coded messages were received and interpreted. He was, thus, in a good position to give his version of the events and he does most succinctly.

Civil War. Told from the perspective of Tad Lincoln, Abraham Lincoln's son. Tad tells the reader what he knows about the Civil War, focusing on the battle at Gettysburg, based upon what his father tells him and what he learns by following his father around.

A short story with illustrations, but I think the subject matter makes it better for older readers.
