Review: THE UNION QUILTERS by Jennifer Chiaverini

Life in the Thumb read and reviewed The Union Quilters by Jennifer Chiaverini for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011.  Here’s an excerpt:

The reader gets a very detailed look into Pennsylvania and some of the battles that took place in the state. I really liked reading about the free African-Americans fight to be included in fighting regiments during the Civil War and how they did not want to be in the background as cooks or ditch diggers. Very compelling and interesting history in that regards.
