Description

In the Civil War, the most violent war that America has ever experienced, brothers fought against brothers and millions of lives were changed forever. In this book you'll find seven stories of real people whose important acts made them a part of history.

These dramatic and thoroughly researched stories put you in the shoes of Northerners and Southerners as they live out the great dramas of the war. You'll run through the streets of Richmond with hungry women who are rioting to protest unfair food prices. You'll suffer Southerner Eugenia Phillip's humiliating imprisonment on a desolate island. You'll go full speed ahead into Mobile Bay at the side of Admiral David Farragut. You'll carry the Stars and Stripes through the thick of battle along with one of the Union's African American divisions. You'll be there at Lincoln's second inaugural, and with Generals Grant and Lee when they sign the surrender ending the war!

Doreen Rappaport and Joan Verniero's vivid histories have won critical praised for bringing true stories to life in realistic detail -- a style that Kirkus Reviews called "a model of excellent historical writing." In United No More! Their signature approach sheds new and human light on the events of the great and terrible Civil War.
