Library Closed July 4th and 5th

We will be closed this Sunday and Monday in celebration of Independence Day. Enjoy your weekend, and try a few American themed books in the meantime:

The real revolution : the global story of American independence / by Marc Aronson.

Why did the American Revolution take place? It was about more than the dates and details we all know: war elephants charging a fort in India and high-stakes gambles of bankers in Scotland, among other events, also played a part in the "real revolution" in the minds of the entire population of what would become the United States.

Under siege! : three children at the Civil War battle for Vicksburg
/ by Andrea Warren

This book looks at the 1862-63 battle for Vicksburg through the eyes of three children: ten-year-old Lucy, the daughter of a Vicksburg merchant; eleven-year-old Willie, the son of a minister; and twelve-year old Frederick, the son of Ulysses S. Grant.

The smart aleck's guide to American history / by Adam Selzer.

Improve your historical knowledge with this witty and efficient presentation of pivotal themes and events such as the American Revolution, Civil War, and civil rights movement. This clever and informative work follows a chronological arrangement from early exploration to the inauguration of President Barack Obama in January 2009.

Eyes of the emperor / Graham Salisbury.

Following orders from the United States Army, several young Japanese American men train K-9 units to hunt Asians during World War II.

Give me liberty / L.M. Elliott.

Follows the life of thirteen-year-old Nathaniel Dunn, from May 1774 to December 1775, as he serves his indentureship with a music teacher in Williamsburg, Virginia, and witnesses the growing rift between patriots and loyalists, culminating in the American Revolution.

Captain America : Winter soldier. Vol.1

Captain America's nemesis, the Red Skull, has been murdered and Cap must find his killer. Plus, he has to retrieve the Skull's last project, a Cosmic Cube that can alter reality, and stop a group of the Skull's followers from setting off bombs in Paris, London, and Manhattan.
