Much has been written about one of the bloodiest fights on American soil-the Battle of Gettsyburg. But nothing comes close to Tillie Pierce's first person account (later penned as an adult after being urged by friends) of the carnage. Told in a voice that only a woman of the Civil War era could speak, Teen Eyewitness is woven with interesting photographs and culminates in a Google Earth map exploration exercise sure to make any Social Studies teacher's heart flutter.

Anderson's book would make a great addition to an ELA classroom's library to teach about the power of a memoir or how to write small moments in time that are momentous. A History teacher's dream, this one is not to be missed.
