Tarshis, author of the popular Emma-Jean Lazarus novels, presents a highly personalized narrative of the Battle of Gettysburg. The story follows former slave Thomas and his little sister Birdie as they fall in with Union forces and make their way north. The Union army rolls toward its epic clash in a small Pennsylvania town, and Thomas becomes a unwitting participant in one of the most formative events in American history. Tarshis writes with sharp, clear, emotional language: “There they were, rebel soldiers ready to charge. There were thousands of them—men in front on horseback, waving gleaming swords.” Back matter includes common questions and answers about the Civil War, along with the text of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. Others in the I Survived series include high-interest topics such as Pearl Harbor and September 11. Grades 1-4. --Erin Anderson

The story starts off with two kids named Thomas and Birdie. They are on a plantation in the South and they decide to run away after hearing two men talking about buying Thomas. Thomas decides to run away with his sister to avoid being separated from her. As they are running away, they find two rebel soldiers holding captive a union solder. Thomas decides saves the union soldier by throwing a skunk that sprays the rebel soldiers in the eyes. The union Soldier then takes Thomas and Birdie back to his camp where his fellow soldiers are stationed. Thomas and Birdie start helping the union soldiers out with their needs. After two days have passed, the union soldiers marched to Gettysburg Pennsylvania for the big battle. Thomas and Birdie are told to stay at the camp with some of the union soldiers. Thomas asked the union soldier delivering supplies if he could come help deliver the amo to the union soldiers at battle. Once they arrive, their wagon is shot by a cannon and Thomas is forced to run out into the middle of the gunfire to escape. Thomas is hit by a stray bullet trying to run into the woods back to camp. After the battle is over some of the union soldiers find Thomas and carry him back to base. Thomas survives because of a tiny book that was given to him by the union soldier he saved. It was in his left shirt pocket when he was shot. This is a great way for kids to learn how helping others could benefit them in the future, while learning about some historical facts.
