Reviews - What do customers think about Black Stars of Civil War Times?

A must have for kids  May 14, 2010
This is a great book for kids ages 8-12 I would say. Very easy to read. Light and easy to carry in the car or to grandma and grandpa's house. The book contains interesting stories of lesser known people in history. Perfect for curious children and adults alike.
