Since starting our Civil War unit earlier this year, I have been totally ate up with the Civil War.  There are so many things to read about.  After finishing "Killer Angels", I decided to head out to our local used book store for a look-see.  I found some good things.  I was tempted by the novels of Jeff Shaara as well, but stuck with these NF book.


"Touched by Fire" is a fantastic photo book that my 9 year old loves.  They have a whole section on the navy's and vessels - even an old ferry boat converted to a war ship.  Very cool stuff.


The obsession continues!
