Ghosts of the Civil War

Illustrated by: Cheryl Harness
For Ages: 7 - 10
Lindsey thinks the Civil War is just another dull moment in our nation's history -- until she meets the ghost of Willie Lincoln. He takes her back in time to witness the war firsthand. Lindsey watches in awe as the Yankee and the Rebels battle at Fort Sumter and as General Lee surrenders at the Appomattox. And just as the war is ending, the tragic assassination of President Lincoln occurs before her eyes. When she returns to present, Lindsey realizes "the Civil War is a whole lot more than cannons and flags and stuff." With Harness's vivid illustrations, compelling dialogue, and detailed timelines, any young reader will realize it too.
