Want Boys to Read Books? Give Them Books They Want to Read

In this installment of the best-selling history series, young readers move chronologically through 20 Civil War battles, beginning with the first shots fired at Fort Sumter to the final days at Appomattox. Historic photographs, maps, and powerful chapters make history leap off the page, capturing the attention of even reluctant readers. Learn about the military leaders, weapons, and strategies that brought victory--or defeat--on American soil.

Some of the battles covered:

  • Forts Henry and Donelson: North and South fight for control of Kentucky's crucial waterways.

  • The Ironclads: Two navies battling hull-to-hull on the Virginia coast.

  • Antietam: More than 22,000 casualties--and yet, neither side won.

  • Chancellorsville: Robert E. Lee's greatest victory.

  • Gettysburg: The war's costliest battle--more than 40,000 deaths--provoked Lincoln to issue the Emancipation Proclamation.

  • Vicksburg: How Grant starved and bombed a southern city into surrender.

  • Second Battle of Sabine Pass: A little-known Texas fight with a surprising victory.

  • Petersburg: How the Union literally blew a hole in the South.

Make sure your kids know the past--so they can change the future.
