Review: MY VICKSBURG by Ann Rinaldi

Diary of an Eccentric reviewed My Vicksburg by Ann Rinaldi for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011.  Here’s an excerpt:

My Vicksburg shows the hardships that the people endured during the siege, mainly how the Union won the town by essentially starving its people, and even while devising ways for the Corbets to be well fed, Rinaldi emphasizes how their neighbors weren’t so lucky.  She also shows how the war pitted loved ones against one another and forced people of all ages to make difficult decisions.  Moreover, Rinaldi doesn’t sugarcoat the trials and horrors of war, understanding that younger readers can handle such truths.
