Bull Run

Author: Paul Fleischman

A black man passing for white so as to fight, an orphan who's found family among horses, a cynical doctor, a slave, a sketch artist... Sixteen characters - 8 northern, 8 southern - describe their experiences in the Civil War's first major engagement. Crossing back and forth across battle lines, the book is told through 60 monologues and is conducive to classroom reader's theater.
