$11.99 $0.00

By Steve Sheinkin, Author & Tim Robinson, Illustrator. From a Newbery Honor author, the surprising true stories of the soldiers and statesmen who battled it out during the American Civil War. History doesn't have to be boring. Two Miserable Presidents unravels the complicated string of events that were the American Civil War with a storyteller's eye to plot and character development: President Lincoln answers the door wearing his slippers, Jefferson Davis would rather prune his rosebushes than serve as president of the Confederacy, and Stonewall Jackson terrifies the North with his wily tactics on the battlefield. Carefully researched, with a generous helping of primary source material, this is an even-handed look at the Civil War—surprising, straightforward, and utterly true. For ages 10 and up.
