Bruce Catton won the Pulitzer prize for his history writing, and wrote a number of books about the Civil War. The Battle of Gettysburg tells the story of this bloody battle and includes numerous paintings, maps, and photographs.

This illustrated series on American History is a striking exception to the usual age group concept in publishing. Instead of bearing an "adult" or "juvenile" label, Adventures in History volumes are designed for any alert reader who wishes a clear and accurate introduction to the subject. Many are written by solid authors from the 1960s.

The approximately 150 page books contain a gallery of from-the-period pictures on the subject as good or better than most museum collections, and every volume is indexed and provides a list of suggested further reading. Most of them can be read online for free!
