Chelsea House's Famous Figures of the Civil War Era series features individual biographies of 10 military, political, and civic leaders. Intended for children aged eight and up, each book includes a glossary, time line, sidebars, and suggestions for further reading. Norma Jean Lutz describes how Sojourner Truth spent her early life as a slave in New York, but later campaigned for abolitionism and suffrage. Jefferson Davis, by Joey Frazier, describes the statesman's youth, congressional service, CSA presidency, and postwar life. Martha S. Hewson's Stonewall Jackson and Tim O'Shei's Ulysses S. Grant trace the lives and careers of these prominent generals. Additional biographies in the series cover Lee, Lincoln, Sherman, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, and Harriett Beecher Stowe.
