Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Through National Geographic’s heart-stopping you-are-there reenactment photography and in-depth research and reporting, readers will be transported back to this key episode in our nation’s history. Considered Lee’s “most one-sided victory of the war,” Fredericksburg was a significant turning point in the Civil War. 1862 takes a new look at the battle and provides readers with a unique perspective on what the war meant to non combatants and particularly to blacks on the cusp of freedom. This extraordinary coverage is made possible by newly discovered primary sources, including a never-before-known slave diary. From death, injury, and despair to victory and the trials of post-war life, the 1862 battle of Fredericksburg changed a town and a nation forever.

 

As the newest installment in the New Look series, this fresh, new historical book is timed to coincide with the beginning of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War and will complement school curriculums in fifth and eighth grades.
