5.0 out of 5 starsGreat Option
Reviewed in the United States on April 3, 2014
In my classroom each year I create a Civil War Book Club, students choose between two books; Killer Angels and The Slopes of War. This year I needed another book at a lower reading level for a few of my eighth grade students, and The Long Road to Gettysburg was just that book. The story is about two soldiers, one Union and one Confederate at the battle of Gettysburg and is based on primary source documents (their letters). The book includes lots of graphics (pictures, photos and maps) to help support the reader. This book is a great addition to my library.
5.0 out of 5 starsExcellent introduction to the battle for young readers

Excellent introduction to the battle for young readers; the maps are easy to understand and illustrations and photos help explain the three days of fighting for the younger readers. If you are planning a trip to Gettysburg with kids this would be a great book to help them appreciate the experience.
