Eyewitness Books: Civil War is a great book
that allows the reader to expand their horizons and learn about the bloodiest war fought in the United States.

This is another one of the books from the Eyewitness set.

This one is all about the Civil War in American history and it is great! It includes pictures and tons of facts on everything from the leaders like Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis to different battles like Gettysburg. It is full of facts on each page about the war, the North and the South, slavery, and a lot more than I can write about here.

We cannot get enough of the Eyewitness books in our house. Every subject seems to be interesting when paired with good writing, fabulous images, and good facts. The Civil War is especially good because of the way it covers all the different aspects of the war. Everything from society to weapons to leaders is covered in this one comprehensive volume. The newer editions have a fantastic resource section at the end.

Eyewitness books bring history alive with their abundance of relia photographs and indepth historical articles. A couple of the drawings in this book were uncomfortable for my 9-year-old. War is not pretty. Still, a valuable Civil War book.
