Details the days before, during and after the Battle of Gettysburg, a significant event which occurred in 1863 during the Civil War.

Although most of the Graphic Library collections are excellent in their portrayal of history, The Battle of Gettysburg may have proved to be quite a challenge. Albeit it is one significant event in this war, there wasn't enough material that could justify a graphic representation. While I was reading it, I got a bit confused and had to reread the narrative a couple of times because the text kept switching between Northerners and Confederates. This confusion was intensified by the Culp Hill and Cemetery Hill battles. I definitely think that maps of the region and drawings showing the battlefield from above could have effectively aided this war narrative. The pictures could have given readers a better idea of how a battle was fought in those days. Instead this text shifted from small panels showing battle scenes and decisions that were made behind closed doors. When you think of this text from a pedagogical standpoint, there isn't much to offer. From the information and pictures, it would be difficult to draw comprehension skills.

Perhaps students might be motivated to learn by seeing the drawings of the battle here. At least, students may know that this was the battle that lead to the Gettysburg address which is explained in the last chapter and presented in full at the end of the book. Also the language is at the reading level it targets and the art design is neat. Other than that it remains a weak text.
I am a teacher and my students absolutely love these books! I would give them 5 stars, but they are cheaply made and pages start falling out after only a small amount of use.
11 yr old enjoys these comic book style historical stories
Our 7 yr. old grandson really enjoyed this book, after telling us that his 1st grade class doesn't cover enough history!
Arrived in excellent condition and a day earlier than scheduled.My grandson loves this book and is always taking it out from the library....thank you.
I admire the Graphics Library for trying to take on big historical subjects and explain them to kids via graphics means. But sometimes they bite off more than they can chew. "The Battle of Gettysburg" is one such example. I have read much about the battle and visted the scene on several occassions. But I still find the action of the 3-day event difficult to grasp. Tens of throusands of men swarming over thousands of acres in the din of battle, with phenomenal heroism and sometimes folly on both sides -- there's too much to make sense of in a few pages.

The larger elements of the battles -- Lee's desire to take the fight to the North, the Peach Orchard, the Wheatfield, Devil's Den and Pickett's Charge -- are included.The entire story is bracketed by the attack on Fort Sumter and Appomatix, giving an uninformed reader the sense that Gettysburg brought an end to the war, though it would slog on for nearly 2 more years afterwards. There is little context to the story. Without a map, it's hard to tell where the action is taking place on the sprawling battlefield. The book simplifies the cause of the Civl War to slavery. Some might object to the lack of blood and others to a non-neutral stance that has Confederate troops called "Rebels" and once as "enemy."

I consider this another "miss" in the Graphics Library collction. A noble thought, but "The Battle of Gettysburg" is neither clear enough for younger readers (2-4 grade) nor informative enough for intermediate readers (5-6 grade). The book's childish and bloodless style for mature readers (7th grade and up) with a deepening understanding of history and appreciation for more "grown up" graphic material.

I have purchased quite a few historical graphic novels the last few years. I recently finished reading “The Battle of Gettysburg” (by Michael Burgan, illustrated by Steven Erwin, Keith Williams and Charles Barnett 111) Graphic History published by Capstone Press. Having read several regular books on the civil war and the battle of Gettysburg in the past, I found this edition fairly accurate with excellent illustrations. This 32 page volume is organized into four chapters.

Chapter one covers “the road to Gettysburg.” Chapter two explains the gains and losses in the battle. The third chapter focuses on telling about a bloody victory and the final chapter provides an overview of “after the battle.” There is also a section that tells more about the battle of Gettysburg, including Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg address. There is also a glossary, internet sites, a biography and an index.

My only real complaint is that it was only 32 pages and did not go into greater depth; however, if you are seeking a very brief summary of the battle of Gettysburg you may want to check out this short graphic novel.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Use of the Monadnock (MEB) Straight Baton).
