A Civil War reenactment should be fun, right? Not in our town! It feels like war fever's taken over. The tension started to build when we all chose sides. Confederate and Union sympathizers never did mix. And if that wasn't enough to heat things up, someone started to secretly dig large holes in the battlefield. Pretty odd -- and very suspicious. Is someone waging a little ...more

2005 edition. This is the first Nancy Drew Girl Detective book that I bought. I was attracted to it because it deals with a Civil War reenactment, and I happen to be very interested in the Civil War and wanted to see what kind of a story for Nancy Drew it would make.

The town is going to hold a reenactment and the townspeople are choosing which side they wish to fight on. Reflecting the actual feeling in some towns of that time, the people are divided, the majority wanting to fight with the Unio

Another mystery again by Nancy Drew! When mysterious thing are happening at the Civil War reenactment like Mrs. Mahoney's car accident Nancy Drew has to solve the mystery. Other people are sure it's no case to be solved but when illegal fireworks are blown everybody up at the picnic and people are placing bombs at the confederate army yard, this Civil War reenactment is really getting out of hand!

I have read the Nancy Drew book and it was amazing. This book had a lot of suspense and character into it. It really made you think hard on trying to figure out who commited the crime that was solved by Nancy Drew. The author did a really great job putting this book together and she earns a job well done.

As I reread certain Nancy Drew books, I find myself loving Uncivil Acts over and over again, even though I'm Canadian and not American. The fact that it has a reenactment in the book just draws me to it, as I'm a fan of history fiction and history itself. Great re-read.

This fast-moving story for eight- to twelve-year-old girls highlights Nancy Drew's sleuthing skills in the young detective's steadfast pursuit of the bad guy. A Civil War reenactment provides a history link. The genealogy theme can prompt a classroom discussion.

This is the longest time it has ever taken me to read a Nancy Drew book. This is definitly not my favorite Nancy Drew book, but I did like it more this time reading it. Just think how much a history play can make so much trouble.

I learned more about the civil war but it wasn't that great of a mystery. The beginning gave away the bad guy right away!
