    reeahe1617's book review was featured in Undying Glory The Story of the Massachusetts 54th Regiment.
    All in all, Undying Glory by Clinton Cox is a very good book. My rating is a solid 9/10, and here’s why. Undying Glory tells the story the Massachusetts 54th Regiment, the first troop of African American soldiers. First thing’s first, this book tells the story of the 54th perfectly. Being a nonfiction story told by Clinton long after the events happened, the wording makes it seem like the story is told from the point of view of an immediate bystander. Emotion is used perfectly and captures the devastating nature of war. When a character (Whom I will not name because it would spoil the book) dies in the war, it is horrifying because Clinton got the reader so connected with the character. Why was it a nine out of ten instead of a ten? Although being a very powerful story, the story is a little bit hard to follow. Due to the very advanced language of the book, some plot details seem a little bit confusing. I recommend this book for anyone who is looking for a factual, intense, and powerful story of war. I do not recommend this book for anyone younger than 9, or the faint of heart.

    I found this book to be really boring and it didn’t really engage me into it, I wouldn’t read this book again. I’d say the only interesting part in this book is when Noah loses half of his arm and they are in the hospital and watching all the soldiers limbs be torn off. I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone because I didn’t find this interesting.

    I thought that Two Girls of Gettysburg was a good book. I thought that the ending wasn’t strong enough though. I would like to go more into the future and see how everything ended up for the characters. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes stories about friendship.

    This book was an okay book. It was interesting at some points, but it did get a little boring at points, unless there was a specific part that interested me. I recommend this book to someone who wouldn’t mind hearing some sort of goriness, and is into mystery like novels. I, myself would not want to read this again if I could.

    I like this book there are a lot of things going on, but not too many that you don’t know what's going on. The ending is my favorite part although it is very sad. I recommend this book to people who are a little bit interested into the Civil War but also a little bit of realistic fiction and drama.

    I liked the book because I thought that it was interesting on how Jennie Hodgers was “Albert Cashier” in the civil war. I learned a lot about the Battle of Vicksburg. My favorite part of the book was when her and Tom were in Ireland because it shows how fast her life changed. I would recommend this book to people who like fiction and also learning about things at the same time.

    I liked this book very much but the ending was really sad. I love how Catrina is such a strong minded person and does what she wants not what the world wants. I recommend this book to anyone who likes a good drama. Warning- This book contains content that may be unsuitable for anyone younger than seventh grade.
