I am a history buff and try as much as possible to get my 5th graders interested in history too. That being said, I thought this was a pretty good book for someone who is already a fan of historical books. I always enjoy the back stories of history that aren't usually taught in school. However, this would probably not be a good choice for someone who knows little of the Civil War or how it divided our country. I do plan to recommend it to 3 boys I teach who are history buffs and will probably eat this one up.
