School Library Connection - Ellen Spring, School Librarian, RSU#13 Schools, ME

"This Connect collection is a unique and fascinating idea; connecting three nonfiction books with a fictional text. Thus, along with learning the facts of the causes of the war, the major battles, and the influential leaders of the time, students can read historical fiction with characters they will truly care about. This makes history come alive." - School Library Connection
