Starred Review ALA Booklist
*Starred Review* Otfinoski's comprehensive history of the U.S. Civil War, including the events preceding and following it (Reconstruction and abolition), presents its material in a way that is never dull or overwhelming. Despite the higher page count, this attractive volume in the A Step into History series is not marked by dense text or unwieldy dates. Each four-page chapter is comprised of an introductory spread, typically featuring a well-chosen illustration or quote and a few lines that summarize or contextualize the upcoming chapter. This is then followed by a single page of succinct, straightforward text and a full-page, captioned period photo. Notes to the reader appear as marginalia and serve to clarify the text, while giving it a less formal feel. Readers will come to understand the issues driving the conflict, the Union and Confederate views on slavery, key officers and battles, and, of course, President Lincoln's role during these troubled times. Maps, a list of the Union and Confederate states, and useful back matter make this well-designed and thorough historical account one that kids will actually enjoy reading.

A Step Into History series takes a step into some of the most important moments in history, and discovers how these moments helped shape the world we live in today.

In 1860, the United States was split in two as several southern states seceded from the Union to form their own nation, the Confederate States of America. As President Abraham Lincoln attempted to hold the country together, war broke out between the Union and the Confederates. Readers will discover why the southern states seceded, how the war affected the people of the United States, and what lasting effect the conflict had.
