The Split History of the Battle of Gettysburg
A Perspectives Flip Book
by Stephanie Fitzgerald
It’s July 1863. The Civil War is at a turning point. The Confederacy has won some important battles, despite having fewer soldiers and resources than the Union does. The two great armies are marching to the same rural fields near the small town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. What will happen there could change the course of the war—and the future of the United States. Experience the battle as seen from both sides.
Perspectives Flip Books are like two books in one: start from one end and immerse yourself in one viewpoint on a major historical event. Then flip it over and immerse yourself in another, very different viewpoint. Readers will come away with deeper understanding of events and history's many perspectives.
