"The Bloodiest Day" references poetry (Barbara Frietchie), shows the finding of the confederate troop movements wrapped in with some cigars, show sthe generals' decision-making processes, includes quotes (!), and much more. One of my sons enjoyed the drummer boys being tied to their commanding officer so tey wouldn't run away. Great details in the book.
Some vocabulary includes: hard-earned, staggering, brigade, division, dismal, murderous, volley, possession...
I highly recommend this series of books.
