The Civil War takes readers on a chronological journey of the most important events of the conflict with action-packed illustrations by Mort Künstler-the most collected Civil War artist in the world-and inquiry-based text award winning historian and author James I. Robertson, Jr. With close readings of Künstler’s paintings, young readers can parse the details of key moments of the war, including the Battle of Bull Run, the Emancipation Proclamation, and the Gettysburg Address, to learn how it really felt to be there. A timeline and short biographies of notable figures in the war, such as generals Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee, provide excellent supplements to each narrative chapter.
