What was life like during the Civil War?
From 1861 to 1865 the United States was at war—against itself—as the North fought against the South. The war affected all Americans, including Jewish soldiers and their families. Their lives would never be the same again. In this engrossing book, children will learn about the daily life of Jews during the Civil War—the homes they lived in, the foods they ate, the work they did, the schools they went to, and the games they played.
Jewish Life in America during the Civil War is part of The Way It Was, a series of fascinating books about everyday Jewish life in American history.
Each volume includes authentic photos and eyewitness accounts, as well as engaging text and design.
