    sheanuggets89's book review was featured in No Man's Land.
    Quite personally, I thought the book was AWESOME! I hated some of the blabbering and lines until the juicy stuff came along. I thought it was pretty sad at the beginning when “Pap” got attacked by an alligator. And it was quite shocking to find out that Tim wasn’t a boy. Knowing all this time from the beginning. The best and most exciting part came when in Shenandoah Valley the battle broke out. Yanks vs Rebs. There were some pretty funny moments in the book. Like when Thrasher ends up eating a whiskey watermelon. I thought that part was pretty amusing. I really thought this one was a good one. Most fictional Civil War books I read are from the point of view from Union, but this one I like because it’s unique and different from most. It gives us a point of view from the Confederates. And so, I think that is interesting. If I were to rate this book from 1 to 10, I’d say a solid 9 and a ½. As the book had exciting and funny and interesting parts for the most part. And all the talking and conversations were interesting but they were probably in the least. If I could recommend this book to anybody, it would probably have to be people interested in the civil war or wondering about it. Because this book is quite the interesting one. A view from the opposing side. The confederates (if that’s your point of view.). Or people who own a confederate flag or have southern heritage. Because they could feel how this kid could feel. This book was REALLY good. And I think it’s definitely worth a read.

    reeahe1617's book review was featured in Undying Glory The Story of the Massachusetts 54th Regiment.
    All in all, Undying Glory by Clinton Cox is a very good book. My rating is a solid 9/10, and here’s why. Undying Glory tells the story the Massachusetts 54th Regiment, the first troop of African American soldiers. First thing’s first, this book tells the story of the 54th perfectly. Being a nonfiction story told by Clinton long after the events happened, the wording makes it seem like the story is told from the point of view of an immediate bystander. Emotion is used perfectly and captures the devastating nature of war. When a character (Whom I will not name because it would spoil the book) dies in the war, it is horrifying because Clinton got the reader so connected with the character. Why was it a nine out of ten instead of a ten? Although being a very powerful story, the story is a little bit hard to follow. Due to the very advanced language of the book, some plot details seem a little bit confusing. I recommend this book for anyone who is looking for a factual, intense, and powerful story of war. I do not recommend this book for anyone younger than 9, or the faint of heart.

    The book “Chasing Lincoln’s killer” is a very good book because it tells you about not just the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln but more past that. And what had happened like, John Wilkes Booth being killed 12 days after the assassination that shocked me. I’d recommend this book to people that like non-fiction and crazy adventures and history.

    I thought that Two Girls of Gettysburg was a good book. I thought that the ending wasn’t strong enough though. I would like to go more into the future and see how everything ended up for the characters. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes stories about friendship.

    Well honestly this book wasn’t the most interesting book in my opinion. Reading isn’t something I prefer to do so that’s why i say this, whoever is reading this hopefully you like. It does have a couple interesting points like when he loses his arm or his dad gets hurts.

    This book was an okay book. It was interesting at some points, but it did get a little boring at points, unless there was a specific part that interested me. I recommend this book to someone who wouldn’t mind hearing some sort of goriness, and is into mystery like novels. I, myself would not want to read this again if I could.

    I like this book there are a lot of things going on, but not too many that you don’t know what's going on. The ending is my favorite part although it is very sad. I recommend this book to people who are a little bit interested into the Civil War but also a little bit of realistic fiction and drama.

    I recommend this book for teens, it has a lot of big words kids wouldn’t understand. I enjoyed it, it had a good plot but the conflict was a bit strange for a book about war. It has some sad moments but it turned into a happy ending.
