I didn't like when the author said in the book when they lost birdie and found the doll which was covered with blood this detail really scared me and should not be in a children's book. I like when the author said in the book that when Henry the character said to Thomas and birdie that Henry's sweetheart (Mary) was going to teach Thomas and birdie to read and write. I liked this fact because a lot of African American people could not read or write so the kids are so lucky to get to learn to read and write. I love the I survived books because they give a lot of facts that I did not know and the story relates to a kid that experiences this event. Thank you Mrs.Tarshis for writing I survived books and keep writing I am so excited to read them all. Thank you so much for tacking your time to read this. Next I am going to read the bombing of the Pearl Harbor!!!! P.S I am not a hater I just want to tell you things that were on my mind!!!! From your #1 fan Lilly!!! Have a merry Christmas!!! THANK YOU

This book does a great job explaining the civil war and gives many great details... I loved this book and would definitely recommend it!

Good view of racial conflicts at that period of history. Good research starter, but not good for research itself.

Meh. I am a history geek and often will read books that are Gettysburg or Civil War related. I understand this book is written for kids, but I feel that this story needs more meat to it, and the story line jumps around a lot. So, if your kid loves history and wants an easy read, this is a good book to have. But if you're a history geek and want a book with a bit more of a story line to it, move on.

Totally fictional,if you are writing for children,it should be more based on facts
