Even readers who don't often read history are captivated by Tanya Anderson's Tillie Pierce: Teen Eyewitness to the Battle of Gettysburg.
This all-true account, illustrated with dozens of remarkable historical photographs, immerses you in the town that turned into a battlefield during a hot week in July 1863.
Just 15 when the war came to Gettysburg, Pa., Tillie Pierce watched as the Confederate and Union armies took turns capturing her town, stealing everything in sight, and turning homes into blood-soaked field hospitals. She remembered every moment and wrote it down.
A Junior Library Guild selection, Tillie Pierce is now available in a beautiful softcover for just $14.95.
