"In many schools these days, students aren’t being taught about the individual battles and struggles of our nation’s history, including Gettysburg." 5 Star review Great Battles for Boys: The Civil War.
From the opening shots at Fort Sumter to the Confederate surrender at Appomattox, boys will move chronologically through 20 crucial battles, covering all four years of the Civil War.
They'll discover which strategies, tactics, and weapons were used, and which military leaders won the victories—or suffered defeats.
Some of the battles include:
Battle of the Ironclads: One of America's deadliest naval battles, right off the coast of Virginia
Vicksburg: Union General Ulysses S. Grant bombs, terrorizes, and starves a southern city into surrender.
Antietam: Confederate General Robert E. Lee invades the North, and pays a terrible price.
Petersburg: The Union literally blows a hole in the South—and yet still loses the battle.
And much more!
Sherman's March—who, what, when, where, and why.
Why was General Robert E. Lee still considered a military genius, despite losing the war?
What made General Ulysses S. Grant such a powerful general—and difficult man?
