A Patriotic Pick: January 2021

Enjoy this Grateful American™ reading recommendation!
Whether it’s via their tone, topic, or tenor, certain works just say “America.” Here is one such title, suggested by Grateful American™ Book Prize judge Dr. Peter S. Carmichael, the Robert C. Fluhrer Professor of Civil War Studies and director of the Civil War Institute at Gettysburg College:
- The three-volume “Centennial History of the Civil War” by Bruce Catton. Taken together, Catton’s The Coming Fury, Terrible Swift Sword, and Never Call Retreat, written between 1961-1965, comprise a sweeping, detail-rich account of the War Between the States, from its bloody beginnings to its complicated aftermath.
Each year, the Grateful American™ Foundation, through its Book Prize, honors excellence in children’s historical nonfiction and fiction focused on the people and events that have shaped the U.S. since its birth. To learn more about the prize, click here.
