Relates, through illustrations and short passages, events of the Civil War and the Battle of Gettysburg This book discuss the aftermath of this battle as seen through the eyes of soldiers, from generals to privates.

This book is excellent for text analyst/critic according to the Luke ad Freebody Model. I could have the students extend a passage in terms of the way they would have felt during this time period. What effect did the war have on the soldiers. The studetns could also make journal entri

So glad to see Joshua Chamberlain included in these one-page portrayals of both north and southerners, and include a variety such as women, photographer, young, old. Colorful illustrations lack solid grasp of proportions, but this is minimally distracting. I wonder about the inclusion of the observation balloon, as other accounts indicate use of them was ceased in April of 1863.

This was a great book to really get a feel for what the battle of Gettysburg was like for the people at the time. The book walks the reader through the battle in chronological order with each page being told from the perspective of different characters. The book begins with Robert E. Lee's account, followed by teachers, nurses, soldiers, mothers... I think students would like this book as part of a Civil War unit.

An enjoyable look at different perspectives from participants of the battle of Gettysburg. I wish the whole shoe issue hadn't cropped up in it, but otherwise this could be a great intro for students.
Voices of different participants at the Battle of Gettysburg. Great for teaching perspective and narrative voice.

Teachers will love this collection of 15 2-4 paragraph reflections on the Battle of Gettysburg, The Historical Note is easier to read than a textbook and gives background that could be read before or after the reflections. I, of course, love the fact that the illustrator is a teacher!

Pair this with Bull Run or use it to give students a more realistic vision of War.
