Review: 'The Civil War' Edited by Ruchir Shah

The Civil War: The American Civil War -- 1861 to 1865 Edited by Ruchir Shah, 2007, EZ Comics, $ softbound, 33 pages. Category/Genre: history. Cover: decent. Where we got it: editor. Where you can get it: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million. 

Aiming at younger readers, this book is an attempt to get people interested in history. It goes over the main points of the Civil War (for example, the invention of the cotton gin made it easier to make cotton cloth, which increased the demand for cotton, and therefore, the demand for slaves). 

With a plethora of colourful pictures and a concise re-telling of this period of history, the book is likely to appeal to its core audience. If you or a young person you know is struggling with learning about the Civil War, you may want to try this book.
