cover art by David Spohn

Save the Colors is a riveting, highly recommended novel of war time battlefield courage that provides young readers with a kind of "window in time" through which to learn and feel what it was like for boys their age on the frontlines of the American Civil War.

Save the Colors is a well-researched story that is aimed at middle-grade students interested in history.

Joanne Reisberg brings the excitement of 1861 to life as Charley and Gunnar begin the adventure of their lives. The young soldiers depicted in Reisberg's book are typical of the generation that saved the Union and freed the slaves.
