Ghosts of the Civil War
Bargain Book Copy
Lindsey couldn't have cared less about the Civil War, let alone a battle reenactment. After all, who cares about a boring old war that happened more than a hundred years ago? And then she meets Willie - but he's not just another kid, he's actually Willie Lincoln, and he's traveled back to the present to explain exactly what the Civil War was really about. He takes Lindsey by the hand and leads her on a tour like no other as they witness heated debates about abolition, secession, and patriotism. They visit Fort Sumter as the war is declared, witness bloody battles as Bull Run and Gettysburg unfold before them, and then watch General Lee's surrender to Grant at the Appomattox Court House. And just when Lindsey thinks this gruesome, terrible war is all over, she watches with terror as the tragic assassination of President Abraham Lincoln occurs right before her eyes. Filled with detailed maps, glossaries, biographies, and dynamic, glorious illustrations, Ghosts of the Civil War brings this monumental era in American history fully alive. It's a journey that Lindsey - and every reader along with her - will never forget.
